The Center sponsors a diverse array of seminars, conferences, and programs that involve resident affiliates, a variety of international scholars, government officials, and representatives of the private sector. The results of Center research are made available to the public and to the policy-making community through the Center’s online database collection of working papers and published research, and the publication of the Centerpiece and Epicenter newsletters, as well as books and special reports. The Center also produces an annual report that summarizes the Center's activities of the past academic year.
