Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs

Industrialization, Governance, and Technology

We are committed to understanding how technological change can be harnessed to achieve better governance, security, and developmental outcomes.  Our scholarship includes research on industrial innovation across nations as diverse as China, the United States, and Switzerland and the application of data analytics in order to improve policing, educational, and healthcare outcomes, while extending into the study of globalized labor standards compliance; and the interaction between technological change and global security regimes surrounding energy or weapons of mass destruction.
