Columbia International Affairs Online: Working Papers

Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, Harvard University


The Weatherhead Center for International Affairs is an autonomous component of Harvard University's Faculty of Arts and Sciences. It is structured to encourage the highest practical level of personal and intellectual interaction among a diverse community of scholars and practitioners. The Center is distinctive in its recognition that knowledge is a product not only of individual academic research but also of vigorous, sustained intellectual dialogue among scholars and nonacademic experts. To stimulate this dialogue, the Center sponsors a wide array of seminars, research programs, workshops, and conferences.

The fruits of Center research are made available to the public policy community through books, articles, reports, seminars, and lectures, as well as through the personal participation of Center members in policy planning and decision making in governments and institutions outside the University.
