RAND Global and Emerging Risks Centers

RAND Global and Emerging Risks is composed of cross-cutting research centers.

Research Centers

  • Meselson Center

    The Meselson Center is dedicated to reducing risks from biological threats and emerging technologies. The center combines policy research with technical research to provide policymakers with the information needed to prevent, prepare for, and mitigate large-scale catastrophes.

  • Technology and Security Policy Center

    The Technology and Security Policy Center researches how high-consequence, dual-use technologies change the global competition and threat environment, then develops policy and technology options to advance the competitiveness and security of the United States, its allies and partners, and the world.

  • The RAND Frederick S. Pardee Center for Longer Range Global Policy and the Future Human Condition

    The RAND Pardee Center pursues ambitious objectives: to improve our ability to think about the longer-range future – from 35 to as far as 200 years ahead – and to develop new methods of analyzing potential long-range, global effects of today's policy options in order to design sound policies that are sensitive to those effects.
