Illustrious body to inform Center’s award-winning digital journal

WASHINGTONThe Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars is pleased to announce the launch of The Wilson Quarterly Advisory Council, a group of preeminent reporters and scholars whose expertise will inform the Center’s award-winning digital journal.

Composed of the Center’s senior vice president and six current or former journalists affiliated with the Center, the Advisory Council will convene several times annually to brainstorm and consider ideas for future issues; share feedback and suggestions; and reflect on the overall direction of the publication.

Wilson Center Director, President, and CEO Jane Harman said:

“For decades, The Wilson Quarterly has distinguished us from other think tanks by showcasing our depth of knowledge and research with narrative writing and reporting of the highest caliber. The Advisory Council brings additional credibility and expertise to this gem of a publication.”

Robert Litwak – Wilson Center senior vice president and former director for nonproliferation on the National Security Council

Helene Cooper – Pentagon correspondent at The New York Times and former Wilson Center public policy fellow

Christian Davenport – defense and space industries reporter at The Washington Post and former Wilson Center public policy fellow
