Analyzing Complex Emergencies in Asia

The Strauss Center's program on Complex Emergencies and Political Stability in Asia (CEPSA) explores the causes and dynamics of complex emergencies in Asia and options for building government capacity to prevent and respond to such situations. The CEPSA program builds on the tools and experience developed under the Center's program on Climate Change and African Political Stability (CCAPS). CEPSA and CCAPS are funded by the U.S. Department of Defense's Minerva Initiative, a university-based, social science research program focused on areas of strategic importance to national security policy.
