WASHINGTON — The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, ranked as the number one think tank for Regional Studies, possesses the expertise to offer a clear idea of what the world is expecting from the 46th President of the United States.

In his Inaugural Address, President Biden announced, “We will repair our alliances and engage with the world once again. Not to meet yesterday’s challenges, but today’s and tomorrow’s challenges. And we’ll lead, not merely by the example of our power, but by the power of our example.”

The Wilson Center has brought together experts covering every inch of the planet in a monumental effort to provide policymakers, researchers, and the media with the tools they need to make informed decisions during the first 100 days and beyond.

“A new U.S. Presidency has a global impact. Navigate the new landscape with our Wilson Center map of world reaction to Joe Biden’s inauguration as the 46th President of the United States,” said Lauren Booth, Digital Communications and Marketing Director at The Wilson Center. “Our sweeping coverage is aggregated by topic and region to assess the new administration’s far-flung influence on foreign policy.”
