Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars
The Wilson Center, chartered by Congress in 1968 as the official memorial to President Woodrow Wilson, is the United States' key non-partisan policy forum for tackling global issues through independent research and open dialogue to inform actionable ideas for the policy community.
The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars is the official memorial to the United States 28th president. More than just a collection of marble pillars and famous quotes, the Center is “a living memorial,” a gathering place for some of the best and brightest scholars and experts from around the world. Their work is the centerpiece of our activity and informs the nation’s public policy debates with nonpartisan and relevant research and information.
At the Wilson Center, preeminent scholars and experts research topics of national and international relevance. In the spirit of President Wilson, we build a bridge between the worlds of academia and public policy, to inform and develop solutions to the nation’s problems and challenges. Democracy is built on the notion of an informed and active citizenry. The Wilson Center provides the fuel that makes this possible…knowledge in the public interest.
Through public meetings and events, broadcast media and social media, publications in print and online, and a wide range of outreach activities, the Wilson Center is engaged in the global dialogue of ideas. More importantly, the Center provides you with the tools and opportunities to join the national conversation.See more
