WASHINGTON—Jane Harman, director, president & CEO of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, announced the members of the 2013-2014 fellowship class. The 21 fellows, most of whom are expected to start September 2013 to spend an academic year in residence at the Center, include scholars and practitioners from the United States, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Japan, Kyrgyzstan, the Netherlands, and New Zealand.

“The Wilson Center brings together thinkers and doers – policymakers, scholars and business leaders – in a safe political space for informed, open, and civil discussion about the tough issues we face,” said Harman. “Wilson Center scholars are the backbone of the institution – and their diversity adds immensely to the richness of thought and dialogue.
