About Epicenter

Epicenter is an online publication that provides commentary and analysis on issues that transcend borders. Our team of writers and editors works with academic specialists to help bring clarity to complex global issues. The Weatherhead Center for International Affairs is committed to Harvard's tradition of fostering innovative, timely scholarly activities that help us all make sense of the world.

The WCFIA has many hundreds of affiliates—faculty members, graduate students, undergraduates, postdocs, visiting scholars, staff, and others—and they represent the widest possible range of opinion on almost every subject. Like the Center itself, Epicenter takes no position on any issue of scholarship or public policy, and we hope to include many of these voices on this site.

We reserve the right to delete off-topic comments, and we reserve the right to remove inappropriate content.
