Moynihan Institute Mission
- extend, integrate, and focus the Maxwell School's commitment to exploring the international and global concerns raised by an interdependent world of diverse cultures, economies, and political systems;
- support interdisciplinary, collaborative research projects among teams of faculty and graduate students to work on understanding and solving critical world problems;
- maintain a productive dialogue between the academic and policymaking communities in the process of translating theory into practice.
The Institute fulfills its mission by supporting research projects, sponsoring lecture series, providing research fellowships and internship opportunities to graduate students, publishing the products of its working groups, and organizing conferences as well as credit-bearing seminars and workshops on its core themes.
