Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace

Director: John Raisian

Web Site:

The Hoover Institution, founded in 1919 by Stanford alumnus Herbert Hoover, is a public policy research center devoted to the advanced study of politics, economics, and political economy, both domestic and foreign, as well as international affairs. Hoover fellows are the foundation of the research program. This varied and distinguished community of scholars strives to conceive and disseminate ideas defining a free society within the framework of three programs:

American Institutions and Economic Performance—Focus is on interrelationships of U.S. political and legal institutions and economic activity, often referred to as political economy.

Democracy and Free Markets—Focus is on political economy in countries around the world.

International Rivalries and Global Cooperation—Focus is on interrelationships among countries, by examining issues of foreign policy, security, and trade.

By collecting knowledge, generating ideas, and disseminating both, the Institution seeks to secure and safeguard peace, improve the human condition, and limit government intrusion into the lives of individuals, all of which are consistent with three prominent values: peace, personal freedom, and the safeguards of the American system.
