Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars

Independent Research, Open Dialogue, Actionable Ideas

aka The Wilson Center   |   Washington, DC   |  http://www.wilsoncenter.org

Mission

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.
