Using foresight and policy analysis tools, it provides government, non-profit, and private sector leaders with evidence-based recommendations on how to boost community resilience, ensure safe and orderly human mobility patterns, develop stability out of conflict, and broaden national security conversations to include strengthening civilian tools to achieve these goals.
The Project on Fragility and Mobility provides an interdisciplinary and international space for new voices and new ideas to help rethink and reshape how best to (1) build resilience and prevent transnational threats in places around the world experiencing fragility and (2) align U.S. and allied national security interests with international human mobility-related frameworks, guided by the belief that protecting vulnerable people on the move allows us to secure our collective futures. The project is thus organized around several main issue areas.
Spotlight on Human Mobility
