Mission Statement

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. By bringing Fellows from around the world to Washington, 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. We sponsor hundreds of conferences and lectures which are open to the public, and publish books and working papers; our journal is "The Wilson Quarterly." "Dialogue" a weekly radio interview show, is nationally syndicated.

Program 1

United States Studies

The program in United States Studies stimulates research and reflection
on problems in U.S. society, politics, and culture by placing
contemporary policy issues in historical, comparative, and global
perspective. It seeks to understand the role of the United States as an
important node in the transnational circulation of people, goods, and
ideas.

Its current concerns include immigration, “green” jobs, old-age
security, work-family reconciliation, and ethical challenges to the
culture of business. This year’s events will also address the crisis of
American newspapers, Muslim integration in the U.S. and in Germany, the
impact of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan on military families, and the
teaching and learning of American values.
