Building More Resilient Communities: Responding to Irregular Migration Flows
This report examines how communities—cities and regions—and entire societies can better prepare for irregular migration through strategies rooted in resilience—meaning the ability to meet disruption, restore stability, and emerge stronger.
A Time of Uncertainty
How We Impact
Convening: The Center will host conferences, roundtables, and discussions to promote a “resilience network,” so that experts and practitioners have the opportunity to learn from one another about building resilience. Participants will include national and international policymakers and elected officials, local community leaders, city officials, businesses, non-profits, and other non-state actors.
Original Research: The Center will publish research looking at the qualities, policies, and actions that were critical—or harmful—to communities when responding and recovering from severe shock. By mining the past for lessons learned, and looking to the future for application of best practices, research will serve as the intellectual cornerstone of the Center’s work.
Storytelling: The plethora of stories about resilience—from communities recovering from natural disasters to individuals overcoming personal hurdles—are a vital resource for harvesting lessons and tools for others. The Adrienne Arsht Center for Resilience will reach broad audiences by telling these stories with high-impact—through social media, video, art, culture, and convening special gatherings around the world.
