The article presents a proposal to assist refugees and internally displaced persons which include displaced victims of natural disasters. It argues that by building an infrastructure with a capability to respond robustly to humanitarian crisis, the U.S. can save lives from disasters and conflicts around the world. It explains why the national security concerns raised by refugee movements and humanitarian crises are exacerbated by emerging developments in globalization. It explains why a regime of enhanced assistance and protection for refugees and displaced persons is an appropriate response to the security risks posed by emerging developments.
