A new Johns Hopkins center dedicated to international studies has a name familiar to those who remember the Nixon and Ford administrations.

The Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs “will specialize in the long-term strategic analysis and in the disciplined application of historical lessons to contemporary international problems,” according to the JHU Hub. The center received $50 million in funding, which was the largest combined gift in the history of Hopkins’ School of International Studies.

“We are living in a period in which we are conscious of our divisions, but it serves to inspire us to our duties because the world is now as disordered as it has ever been,” Kissinger said in a statement. “It is the first time in history that upheavals occur in every part of the world simultaneously and are connected with each other by rapid communication and by global economics.
