World Policy Institute Meetings Program 2016 Memberships

As one of the most influential and widely-cited think-tanks in the United States, World Policy Institute’s work develops innovative solutions and policy recommendations, challenges conventional wisdom, and creates space for underrepresented voices in important global policy discussions. Through our events and policy projects, quarterly World Policy Journal and our website, WPI reaches two million people each year with incisive reporting and analysis on the world’s most pressing challenges. Most importantly, we believe that the inclusion of non-US perspectives infuses our policy conversations with a vital global outlook.

World Policy’s members are a dynamic community of individuals from across industries, sectors, nationalities, and political persuasions. We provide a forum for members to contribute to innovative, solution-oriented dialogues on crucial global challenges, engage with leading experts on critical public policy questions, and gain access to our exclusive events.

WPI membership, and the World Policy Journal, bolster your foundation for understanding policy issues affecting all corners of the globe—most importantly, it makes you a key part of developing the solutions.  

Join the World Policy Institute and change the conversation on the most pressing challenges of an interdependent world.

For more information on individual and corporate membership levels and benefits, contact Amanda Dugan, Director of Programs, at or at 212.481.5005.
