The Feinstein International Center is a research and teaching center based at at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University.

We take a practical, solution-oriented approach to research and teaching to address current and future global humanitarian challenges.

Our research begins by engaging with partners, such as humanitarian agencies and policymakers, to design research that will support them to gather the evidence and information that they need to make the best possible program and policy decisions.

We conduct our research in partnership with international agencies, local communities and a range of research organizations. Together we develop strong relationships, build each other’s capacities and enhance our contextual knowledge. This collaboration strengthens our team and our partners.

Through these partnerships, we use existing knowledge and develop new evidence to inform and influence those who advocate for and create change. We work with our partners to develop publications, hold events and trainings, engage with stakeholders, and contribute to academic debates.

The Feinstein faculty teach at The Friedman School and The Fletcher School, bringing the center’s vast experience and networks into the classroom. Our curricula are grounded in current events making them relevant, engaging, and solution oriented. We arm future leaders with the knowledge, skills, and analytical abilities they need to address challenges and improve policy and practice in the humanitarian field.
