Ongoing conflicts across the globe are having catastrophic social, economic and political consequences that are not often realized and underpin a growing cycle of insecurity. A 2014 United Nations (UN) report puts the number of people displaced by war, conflict or persecution at a record high of nearly 60 million around the world. Additionally, the 2015 Global Peace Index estimates that in 2014 global conflicts killed 180,000 people and cost $14.3tn, which is equivalent to 13.4% of the world’s GDP. And global security trends continues...

ENODO Global’s unique population-centric methodology provides campaigns a deeper understanding of voter sentiment and creates targeted narratives to influence voting outcomes. We deliver a competitive advantage to political organizations seeking to mobilize specific target groups and influence election outcomes. “The way things have always been done won’t be the way the things are done in this upcoming election cycle.” Candidates need to adjust their communications strategies to changing demographics, the immediacy of social media and its effects on public opinion. ENODO’s population-centric methodology goes far beyond traditional...

ENODO Global has created an operating platform for companies to design and implement effective social responsibility programs that achieve direct corporate and community benefits: Social Alignment. The technology was designed to help companies understand and address the complex social challenges—identity conflicts—they encounter across their operations and enhance Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and shared value initiatives. It differs dramatically from CSR and shared value initiatives because Social Alignment focuses on the people where companies operate—not annual reports or philanthropic aspirations. ENODO’s Social Alignment platform incorporates analysis...

However, the reliance on a rigid doctrine to guide implementation, and the inability to keep pace with communications technology, have rendered recent COIN operations ineffective. Moreover, the art of counterinsurgency planning has been forgotten by most military professionals, demonstrated by the failures in Iraq and Afghanistan. Without significant fundamental changes, COIN strategies designed to combat ISIS or future enemies, will not succeed. The key center of gravity...

You do not have to be a Middle East geopolitical expert to see how recent events are changing the course of Saudi Arabia’s future. The Kingdom’s royal family does not fear its imminent demise, but it has significant problems that jeopardize its stability if they are not addressed. The recent death of King Abdullah, significant decreases in oil prices, regional conflicts in Yemen, Syria and Iraq, the constant influence of Iran, and the latest threat from ISIS are forcing the House of Saud to accelerate...

A wave of popular unrest is spreading across Haiti and no one in the West seems to care. For over a month, steady protests and riots against the government have caused President Martelly to replace the Prime Minister and reshuffle his cabinet. Protests are in response to President Martelly’s inability to deliver any meaningful economic reforms or form an electoral council. The council is required before legislative and municipal elections, which have not occurred for over three years, can take place. But, rather than creating...
