During their year at the Weatherhead Center, WCFIA Fellows conduct research and produce a paper. As senior-level practitioners of international affairs, they bring their professional experience to bear in designing and implementing a research project. For some, their studies result from years of professional work in a particular area and on specific issues; for others, the research question they ask is something they have thought about for a long time. Many of these papers have been published in journals both here and in the Fellows’ home countries. Still, other Fellows take the work that they began at the Center and produce books or dissertations in pursuit of PhDs. Though too numerous to mention here, some of the larger studies produced by past Fellows have had a significant impact on both scholars and practitioners/policymakers. They include Sir Crispin Tickell’s (Fellow 1975), Climatic Change and World Affairs, first published by the Center for International Affairs in 1977; The United Nations, Iran, and Iraq: How Peacemaking Changed (Indiana University Press, 1994), by 1989-90 Fellow Cameron Hume; and Michael Libal’s (1995-96) Limits of Persuasion: Germany and the Yugoslav Crisis, 1991-1992 (Praeger,1997).
