The Weatherhead Forum showcases the research of the various units that are associated with the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs. The goal of the Forum is to bring together the diverse constituencies of the Center, to learn about our respective work and to foster the WCFIA intellectual community. All WCFIA affiliates are invited to attend. Lunch will be available starting at 11:45 a.m.; we will start promptly at noon and end at 1:00 p.m. sharp. We will meet in the Bowie-Vernon Room (CGIS K262). The forum is chaired by the Center's director.
