Columbia International Affairs Online: Working Papers

The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars


The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars is a presidential memorial that fosters scholarship and dialogue in the humanities and the social sciences. By bringing Fellows from around the world to Washington, D.C., encouraging discourse among disciplines and professions, and publishing the results of these activities, the Center enriches the quality of knowledge and debate in the nation’s capital and throughout the world.

The Woodrow Wilson Center was established by legislation in 1968 to symbolize and strengthen “the fruitful relation between the world of learning and the world of public affairs.” Created within the Smithsonian Institution, the Center has an independent Board of Trustees and administration. The Wilson Council is a group of private citizens who advise and support the Center. Funding for the Center comes from annual federal appropriations, private gifts and grants, and endowment income.
