The Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance

How is globalization -- the rapid spread of commerce, information, and technology across the planet -- affecting corporations, civic institutions, and even governments? The Woodrow Wilson School’s Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance, endowed by Robert Niehaus ’77 and Kate Southworth Niehaus, brings together an interdisciplinary community of faculty and students from economics, history, sociology, and political science to explore this question. Their work is enhanced by the center’s three visiting fellows programs and its many research partnerships with other academic and policy institutions.


“The center reflects our determination to strengthen Princeton’s international perspective by promoting interdisciplinary research and forging ties with foreign scholars and institutions.”

—President Shirley M. Tilghman
