Core Research Themes

Research conducted by members of the Kellogg intellectual community on our two core themes are at the center of what the Institute does. Democracy and human development—the twin aspirations of effective political participation and improved human welfare—are among the most critical and challenging issues facing humanity today. 

Research Across The Globe

The Kellogg Institute for International Studies at the University of Notre Dame is one of the most visible and prestigious university centers for the study of international issues in the United States. For more than three decades, our faculty and visiting fellows have helped set the scholarly agenda on our core themes of democracy and human development. Our work has had a significant impact on policy and practice.
