Maximizing Human Capital in a Rapidly Evolving Economic Landscape debt

This Transatlantic Council on Migration statement, capping a series of reports focusing on workforce development systems, examines how governments in immigrant-receiving countries can design strategies that maximize their human-capital resources. The Council statement outlines the key tasks that policymakers face, including creating inclusive approaches to integration that address the specific needs of newcomers and help vulnerable populations without prioritizing — or being perceived to prioritize — immigrants at the expense of the domestic population. It also identifies guiding principles for reform, including creating incentives for employers and social partners to invest in worker training. >

The Immigrant Workforce in Germany: Formal and Informal Barriers to Addressing Skills Deficits debt

Reforming U.S. Drone Strike Policies

Over the last ten years, drones have become a critical tool in the war against terrorist and militant organizations worldwide. Their advantages over other weapons and intelligence systems are well known. They can silently observe an individual, group, or location for hours on end, but take immediate action should a strike opportunity become available--all without putting a pilot at risk. This combination of capabilities is unique and has allowed the United States to decimate the leadership of al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and disrupt the activities of many other militant groups. ."

Nuclear Terror Threat Goes 'POOF'

Nuclear Terror Threat Goes 'POOF'

President George W. Bush called it his "ultimate nightmare." Sen. John Kerry, running for president in 2004, said that it was"the greatest threat that we face." They were both talking about the terrifying possibility that a terrorist group could acquire a nuclear weapon and attack the United States. Yet this year, over the course of three presidential debates, the issue barely surfaced. That is dangerous: Nuclear terrorism remains one of the very few vital risks to America, and the next president, whoever he is, will need to work vigilantly to prevent it.
