Wolfensohn Center for Development

After five years of rigorous, independent research and analysis, the Wolfensohn Center for Development has concluded its work. During its tenure, the Center did high-quality research on a number of important topics, including how to lift people out of poverty and create a better future for today's youth. The center has benefitted greatly from the intellectual leadership and support of former World Bank President James D. Wolfensohn.

Following this successful endeavor, issues of development and global poverty, including foreign aid effectiveness, have been powerfully woven into a host of initiatives across Brookings and in particular, the Global Economy and Development program.
