    Abstract:

    This policy brief was developed to assist decision-making in the field of international development on when and how to best utilize data science methods. It is meant to assist all levels of decision-making (from the field to the boardroom) as well as development actors (from donors to community-level NGOs). This general applicability stems from a research focus on general principles and processes that can be adapted as needed. The recommendations include a general decision-making process that…

    Abstract:

    Abstract:

    Climate change has been slow to enter the public dialogue in the Midwest, but this is changing as local residents are experiencing more volatile weather, extreme temperatures, floods, changing growing seasons, and fewer snow days. The past several decades have witnessed increasingly intense weather extremes, resulting in costly damage throughout the region. In 2019, following a winter arctic air outbreak (“polar vortex”) that delivered near-record low temperatures in many areas (for example, …

    Abstract:

    Pervasive sexual violence against women and girls in Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador (including rape, domestic and sexual servitude, sexual assault, forced disappearances, human trafficking, and even murder) perpetrated by gangs, narco-traffickers, human traffickers, and a machismo culture fueled by corruption and impunity has led to some of the highest rates of violence against women and girls in the world, forcing these women and girls to flee and migrate to the United States. While t…

    Abstract:

    The majority of studies on the future of work are predictive in nature, often taking a bird’s-eye view that overlooks the importance of local context. This brief presents six scenarios of the futures of work in South Bend that emphasize stress-point events and phenomena in the larger social, political, technological, and economic environment, with a time horizon of 15 years (2035). The scenarios are geographically focused on the city, but refer to the global situation; in the narratives, the …

    Abstract:

    Though the transition from the Trump administration to the Biden administration occurred on January 20, 2021 as envisioned in the Constitution, the Presidential Transition Index (PTI) team found that only 76 percent of transition provisions were fulfilled. Delays and uncertainty defined what was perhaps the most closely watched and politically fraught transition in modern United States history. Most of these disruptions stemmed from President Trump’s refusal to concede defeat, which caused a …

    Abstract:

    The use of multilateral sanctions paired with diplomacy and incentives-based bargaining was once a hallmark of US nonproliferation policy and helped to advance security goals in South Africa, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Iran, and other countries. However, the Trump administration presided over an unraveling of US nonproliferation policy by rejecting cooperative approaches and misusing these instruments of diplomatic persuasion as unilateral means of punishment and coercion. The result has been …

    Abstract:

    Afghanistan stands on the brink of an historic, albeit precarious, peace between the Taliban and the National Unity Government that presents both challenges and opportunities. On the one hand, such a peace would open new ground for reconstruction and development by eliminating, or at least diminishing significantly, the armed conflict that has plagued Afghanistan for decades. On the other, bringing conservative Taliban policies into the formal structures of governance threatens to roll-back t…
