Weekly quiz!

This is our fourth quiz. I'm starting to feel a lot poorer with my promises of free lunches at Giulio's for the winners. But the show must go on.

We've been tempted to move the focus of these quizzes outside the confines of SAIS Bologna to the fertile territory of international relations. Imagine what kinds of questions we could ask if we plumbed the murky depths of international trade theory, conflict management or (I'm rubbing my hands here) European institutions.

But a lot goes on at SAIS, and mysteries lurk in the nooks and crannies of its past. So here we go with this week's quiz:

One year before the Bologna Center opened, Johns Hopkins University, at the initiative of then SAIS Dean Philip Thayer, started a center of studies in an Asian country. What was the name of the center and in which country was it located?

The center was in this city.
Please submit your answers by filing a "comment" below.

Have fun!
