The Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard was originally founded in 1973 by Paul Doty, when its original gaol was to revive serious analysis of nuclear dangers and arms control. In 1997, the Center was re-endowed, and its primary mission became "to provide leadership in advancing policy-relevant knowledge about the international security and other critical issues where science, technology, and international affairs intersect." Within the Center, there are five main research programs, including international security, intrastate conflict, and Russia and the Caspian. From their home page, visitors can read opinion and editorials penned by people working at the Center, and find out about upcoming talks and conferences sponsored or hosted by the Center. Also, visitors can visit the Publications section of the site to read discussion papers and other scholarship written by scholars and fellows associated with the Center.
