The Jack D. Gordon Institute for Public Policy’s (JGI) Security Research Hub is a new virtual research platform that aims to harness publicly available information that supports collaboration and shared understanding about Latin American and Caribbean security issues amongst FIU and its partners. The Hub will focus on a wide range of security-related topics such as transnational organized crime, migration, illegal fishing, and regional health concerns. The Hub will meet modern challenges by using publicly available data and applying analytic tools that aggregate research and lead to new, original findings.
The SRH has aggregated over 400 data sets and created a series of dashboards & maps meant to synthesize data related to important challenges facing the Western Hemisphere today. Dashboards & maps are created and hosted by FIU on native platforms and ArcGIS. The dashboards and maps are updated frequently as more data becomes available.
