GCRI’s mission is to develop the best ways to confront humanity’s gravest threats. The Global Catastrophic Risk Institute (GCRI) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank. GCRI works on the risk of events that could significantly harm or even destroy human civilization at the global scale. As a think tank, GCRI bridges the world of scholarship and the world of professional practice in government, private industry, and other sectors. We aim to develop highly effective solutions for reducing the risk by leveraging both the best available scholarship and the demands of real-world decision-making.
