Scientific and technological advances in recent decades have greatly improved our capacity to predict and protect ourselves from many natural and manmade disasters. However, we remain quite vulnerable both to natural elements and to unpredictability created through crime, wars and global terrorism. This dimension answers questions that seek to address ways to create a safer future for all.

  • How can we harness technology more fully to create a safer world?
  • What steps can traditional adversaries like Pakistan and India take towards a safer region?
  • Should hegemonic superpowers like the United States play a role towards the promotion of a safer world? Will the outcome of the imminent US elections influence this debate in any way?
