In order to fulfill this mission, the Institute seeks to partner with and build on the existing strengths of individual faculty and programs across the University. The insitute is especially interested in proposals that bridge academic disciplines and that seek to shape policy debates both in the United States and abroad.

Application deadline is December 1, 2016.
