Participate in the Ongoing Quadrennial Homeland Security Review (QHSR)
Two new questions posted by DHS this morning
The homeland security strategic environment question explores the global context in which DHS and our partners operate. We looked at the national and global trends and drivers that are impacting our missio n areas today, and the uncertainties and dynamics that will shape our work in the years to come. What global trends do you think will affect the homeland security enterprise in the coming years? How will those trends impact you and your work?
Our second question focuses on cross-border threats. We continue to assess how threats related to the flows of people and goods across our borders are changing and we value our stakeholder’s insight and expertise. What threats to our borders do you think will become more important over the next five years? Which threats do you think will diminish in importance? Why?
