The University of Washington's new International Policy Institute, located within the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies, has been established with a mission to generate original thinking on emerging topics in international affairs and bring a new and uniquely Pacific Northwest voice to the policy conversation.

The International Policy Institute is funded by a grant from 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. We leverage the research and expertise of Jackson School faculty and host a platform for collaboration between the UW, partner universities and international affairs practitioners, including business leaders, international development experts, government officials, and security professionals.

The work of the Institute centers around three core pillars:

  1. Training students and faculty with an interest in engaging more effectively with the international policy and decision-making community.
  2. Generating new approaches and original thinking on critical global challenges by leveraging the unique perspectives and strategic location of scholars and practitioners in the Pacific Northwest.
  3. Serving as a resource on the emerging international affairs landscape for local, national, and international audiences.
