The Buffett Center sponsors several interdisciplinary working groups to address international and comparative research issues that are not confined to a single department, discipline, or school. Working groups enable the Northwestern scholarly community to come together on a regular basis to reflect and work together on important problems of common interest. Individual groups take different approaches and pursue different goals, such as lecture series inviting leading scholars; discussion of empirical and theoretical works of scholarship; pursing a collaborative, interdisciplinary research projects; producing working paper series; commentary and analysis of group members' work in progress; focused exploration of a region of the world or a set of international issues.
