The Institute for Human Sciences (IHS, 2001-2009) was established at Boston University in November, 2001, as a joint initiative of the University and the Vienna-based Institut fur die Wissenschaften vom Menschen (IWM), an independent, interdisciplinary center for advanced study in the humanities and social sciences, and Boston University. The goal of the Institute was to promote research and debate among European and American intellectuals and policymakers and to encourage frank and informed discussion of public policy issues of special relevance to both the United States and Europe. For eight years, the Institute served as a forum for new, non-partisan debate, research and education in the matters of international (especially transatlantic) relations, introducing European insights and experiences to American debates on major social and political issues, and bringing American perspectives to bear on European discussions. The IHS also served as the American base for joint projects with the IWM. More information about the Institute can be found on the website of the Center for the Study of Europe at Boston University which followed after the Institute for Human Sciences (IHS).
