MIT Center for International Studies
Visit us at http://web.mit.edu/cis.
More than fifty years ago, MIT established the Center for International Studies to conduct research to help the United States in its cold war struggle against the Soviet Union. Before long, however, the Center broadened its focus to include research and teaching in a wide range of international subjects, among them development studies, comparative politics, international relations, social movements, security studies, and international science and technology.
MIT and the Center have always sought to bridge the worlds of the scholar and the policymaker by offering each a place to exchange thoughts and perspectives with the other, and by encouraging academics to work on policy-relevant programs. Center scholars, and the students they helped educate, have served at senior levels in every administration since the Kennedy years. It is a source of great pride to all of us at CIS that they are today among the nation's most distinguished analysts and executives in government and the private sector.
