About the Wilson Center
The Wilson Center, chartered by Congress in 1968 as the official memorial to President Woodrow Wilson, is the nation’s key non-partisan policy forum for tackling global issues through independent research and open dialogue to inform actionable ideas for the policy community.
The Wilson Center brings fresh thinking and deep expertise to the most pressing policy challenges we face today. We convene scholars to create a global dialogue of ideas that Congress, the administration, and the international policy community can act on. In 2019, the Wilson Center was named the #1 regional studies think tank in the world.
Ambassador Mark Green
We really need to hold up the kind of independent research and scholarship that the Wilson Center is famous for. We need to harness it, we need to project it.
Vice President Mike Pence
It’s an honor to be here at the Director’s Forum with the members and friends of this well-respected institution, an institution of independent research, open dialogue, and actionable ideas – truly a bipartisan stalwart here in Washington.
“You have to give the Wilson Center credit for not short-changing its audience when it comes to covering hot-button topics in a single webcast.”
On the Horizon | What to Watch in 2021
2020 turned out to be a year that no one could have predicted. As we look to what is on the horizon in 2021, we contend not only with the usual challenges of international relations, but with a global community still in the throes of the COVID-19 pandemic.
