The Center of International Studies, a "major research arm of the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University, supports scholarship in international relations, comparative politics, and regional studies. The Center is made up of over sixty-five faculty associates, drawn from several departments in the University, and hosts approximately a dozen visiting fellows each year. In their work, Center affiliates examine such issues as the causes and control of war, the political determinants of economic development, the changing role of international relations, and the history and politics of many of the world's key nations and regions. The Center is also the home of World Politics, one of the most highly regarded journals of comparative politics and international relations in the world."[1]

"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."[2]
