The Hoover Institution has established a new two-week visiting program, the Campbell Visiting Fellows. The goal of the program is to bring a set of researchers as visitors who are all focused on research in one general topic area to be present at Hoover during a single two week period, exchanging ideas, interacting with each other, working collaboratively if they wish, and also interacting with other scholars in their field at Hoover at Stanford more broadly.
