Advancing Solutions in Policy, Implementation, Research and Engagement for Refugees (ASPIRE), an INCITE-funded research initiative, takes a multidisciplinary approach to responding to the Syrian refugee crisis. ASPIRE currently encompasses three activities and programs dedicated to innovative approaches to this crisis:
An array of research projects, undertaken in collaboration with Columbia University researchers and partners at local universities, governmental agencies, UN and NGOs, to address the needs of this vulnerable population.
A consortium of Columbia University professional schools that seeks to bring together various experts working around this present crisis.
Opportunities for students engagement in our consortium, research projects and through dedicated coursework.
