The UW International Policy Institute intends to tackle hard problems and new frontiers in international affairs. The Institute is funded by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York aimed at improving the transfer of research and expertise between higher education and the policy world in the area of global affairs. The institute will leverage the research and expertise of Jackson School faculty and create a platform for collaboration between the UW, partner universities, and a host of international affairs practitioners, including business leaders, international development experts, and security professionals. The Institute intends to generate original thinking on emerging topics in international affairs and bring a new and uniquely Pacific Northwest voice to the policy conversation.
