The knowledge base of futures studies (FS) is a new development in the field. It emerged in response to a need for greater clarity about what might constitute the core concerns and features of FS. The article considers a rationale for the development of a knowledge base, the evolution of the present model and some ways in which the model will be further altered through critique, innovation, synthesis and the emergence of new voices. It is suggested that far from being a monolithic entity driven by ‘Western’ interests, the knowledge base is a dynamic process that will evolve over time. In so doing it will become less ‘Western’ and more truly global.
