    Biographical/Historical Sketch

    Stanford University President Emeritus Richard W. Lyman founded the Institute for International Studies in 1988 and was its director until August 1991. The Institute brings experts from a variety of disciplines within the university together with long- and short-term visitors from other academic, government, and corporate institutions to study contemporary policy issues. Research is focused primarily on international security, the global environment, and international political economy. Research programs include the Northeast Asia-United States Forum on International Policy, the Center for International Security and Arms Control, the Americas Program, the Asia/Pacific Research Center, and the Stanford Japan Center-Research, located in Kyoto. The institute also oversees teaching programs and five area centers for African, East Asian, European, Latin American, and Russian and East European studies.
