    outlook

    "In the last section of the paper, she provides an outlook on the future involvement of state actors in this field."

    Is "outlook" used correctly above? I think it is. Is there another word having the same meaning that one could use here?

    Thanks!

    It's not clear what the writer wants to say, is s/he making predictions about future involvement?

    Yes, I think so. Why is "outlook" unclear to you? What else could it mean?

    In that case "future" is redundant IMO.
