Jorge I. Dominguez retired in 2018 after an extensive career at Harvard University. As a professor for 46 years, Jorge Dominguez had a number of roles at Harvard, including director of the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs (WCIA).
The WCFIA is dedicated to research in social sciences, and its mission is to help facilitate groundbreaking research for the students and faculty of Harvard. The center offers many ways to assist researchers and incorporates faculty members from across the university. Its focus is the study of international and transnational relations and the comparative experiences of peoples, politics, economies and societies around the globe.
Research requires funding, and the WCFIA offers help. Grants are available for undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral students, and faculty members.
The center also has numerous research groups that include students, faculty members, and visiting scholars. Postdoctoral researchers from other universities from all over the world and experienced practitioners from many countries are invited each year to pursue their goals in the social sciences.
