The Institute of War and Peace Studies was founded in 1951 under the sponsorship of Dwight D. Eisenhower during his tenure as president of Columbia University. In March 2003, the Institute was renamed The Arnold A. Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies (SIWPS) in honor of Ambassador Arnold A. Saltzman.
The Arnold A. Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies publishes periodic electronic newsletters throughout the academic year and maintains an e-mail distribution list informing recipients of upcoming events and related items of interest.
We invite anyone interested in international security to join the conversation in the International Security Studies Forum (ISSF), an open discussion board and resource for scholarly work. You can find reviews and essays from the ISSF on their website, and you can join the ISSF message boards, which it shares with H-Diplo, by signing up here and choosing "H-Diplo" from the drop-down list.
In July 2013, the Institute sponsored its Seventeenth Summer Workshop on the Analysis of Military Operations and Strategy (SWAMOS).
The Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies is the Institutional Affiliate for the International Security Policy (ISP) Concentration in the School of International and Public Affairs's Master's degree program in International Affairs.
