Global Challenges Program

Today, humanity confronts a wide range of problems that threaten our ways of life and life itself. The 21st century has been characterized by a number of conflicts, ranging from the post 9/11 wars to the violence following in the wake of the Arab Spring. Such problems only stand to get worse as the world is confronted by global warming, unsustainable population growth, economic crisis, nuclear proliferation, and poverty. CGHR’S Global Challenges program seeks to enhance our understanding of and find solutions to the most pressing 21st century challenges, with a particular emphasis on peace and conflict and issues that are at times less foregrounded, including sustainability, global health, and the aftermaths of war
