Increase in Overseas Visiting Fellows at Think Tanks

Many think tanks host visiting fellows from overseas or sponsor US citizens at various institutions abroad.  Those visiting fellow programs seem to be increasing all the time.  Following are a few examples:
  • The Wilson Center just announced its 2012-2013 Fellowship class which includes scholars from the US, Argentina, Canada, China, Germany, Ireland, and the United Kingdom.
  • In August 2012 Brookings announced its fifteenth class of Visiting Fellows to join the Center for Northeast Asian Policy Studies.  The visiting fellows include scholars from China, Korea, and Japan.
  • The East-West Center in Washington, DC has recently announced a new class of visiting fellows.

  • The Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) has a large visiting fellows program, particularly through its Japan Chair.
