About the Project

To help focus U.S. conflict prevention and crisis preparedness efforts, the Center for Preventive Action conducts an annual survey of foreign policy experts to assess which potential contingencies in the coming year deserve more attention and resources than others. The results are released in the Preventive Priorities Survey which ranks thirty plausible contingencies in order of their likelihood and potential impact. CPA also provides background information and up-to-date analysis of contingencies worldwide on its online interactive, the Global Conflict Tracker.

This project is made possible by the generous support of Carnegie Corporation of New York.
