About the Perry World House at the University of Pennsylvania:

Perry World House is a global policy research center that aims to advance interdisciplinary, policy-relevant research on the world’s most urgent global affairs challenges. At a time of increasing ideological division and the politicization of policymaking, PWH will draw on the wide range of expertise found across Penn’s 12 Schools, connecting Penn with policymakers, practitioners, and researchers from around the world to develop and advance innovative policy proposals. Housed at the new, state-of-the-art building at the center of Penn’s campus, PWH is uniquely positioned to convene world leaders, cutting-edge practitioners, and top intellectuals engaged on these vital topics. Our high-level workshops, conferences, engagements, and publications link Penn to the global policy community so that the best ideas have impact now when they are needed most.

Perry World House especially prioritizes events that align with its inaugural research themes: Global Shifts: Urbanization, Migration, & Demography and The Future of Global Order: Power, Technology, & Governance.  From the unprecedented scale of human displacement to questions surrounding the sustainability of urbanization and the consequences of demographic change, the Global Shifts theme examines three interconnected phenomena that individually and collectively shift the world’s population and transform the way we live. The Global Order theme examines the future of the global order in a world of rising nationalism and the role of emerging technologies in shaping international politics, as well as more traditional challenges such as nuclear proliferation and great power relations.
