As recent foreign policy events illustrate, the power of traditional, social, and digital networks has changed the way business and government work together. Nearly anyone anywhere can record videos, photos, or experiences and quickly share them with audiences around the world-in some cases encouraging revolutions in response to seemingly small actions. Increasing economic development challenges, unprecedented natural disasters, and global sustainability issues have brought diverse organizations together on response efforts. As the role of such global networks becomes increasingly important, what are the common areas of interest where public and private expertise can collaborate to achieve the objectives of both? What are the specific tools needed to help share information and identify risks? How can diverse organizations in the public and private sectors integrate new mediums?
