The Elliott School is where research happens. At the core of our mission at the Elliott School of International Affairs is training the next generation of scholars and leaders that will address today's global challenges. Producing knowledge and innovative ideas through systematic research is a prerequisite to achieve this goal.
Our cross-disciplinary faculty combine in-depth analysis with practical applications for solving global problems. Research findings are widely disseminated through publications in top tier academic journals and influential books, as well as popular media outlets. Our 3,000+ students conduct independent research on their own while also gaining important experience working closely with faculty as Research Assistants. Our faculty and students benefit from over 15 academic and research partnerships with institutions throughout the world, as well as coordination with our centers, institutes and programs.
