Since our founding in 1997, the Feinstein International Center has broadened into a multidisciplinary institution focused on providing the understanding, teaching, and evidence needed to drive positive change in policies and practices affecting crisis-affected communities.
This plan describes our intended research, institutional change and education work over the three years 2009 to 2011. We will be driving five major research and institutional change programs, encompassing a total of 34 projects, to better understand the world of crises, and to effect positive change in the lives of those caught up in these crises. In keeping with our grounded approach, we actively build partnerships with local researchers and civil groups, seeking to empower them through the knowledge we jointly generate. Using our university base, we are also privileged to invest in the next generation of researchers and aid workers through the educational programs we run and the courses we teach.
In 2006 we focused primarily upon laying the groundwork and recruiting the faculty and staff to enable us to begin the intellectual and institutional change processes outlined above. We achieved most of our deliverables for 2006 and are extending several into 2007. However, the overall shape of our deliverables in the coming twelve months will differ substantially from those of the closing year.
In this document we present the vision that will guide the Feinstein International Center for the next ten years.
