CIS seeks to promote world peace and mutual understanding among nations by supporting scholarship in international relations and national development. It was founded when Yale University's Institute of International Studies was brought to Princeton, renamed and affiliated with the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University. The center has supported the analysis of abiding questions in international security and political economy, and of more time-defined issues such as privatization or the restructuring of economies and states. CIS supports annual visiting fellows and serves as a source of support to faculty associates drawn from several departments in the university.
