Hudson Institute is a research organization promoting American leadership for a secure, free, and prosperous future.
Founded in 1961 by strategist Herman Kahn, Hudson Institute challenges conventional thinking and helps manage strategic transitions through interdisciplinary studies in defense, international relations, economics, energy, technology, culture, and law.
Hudson seeks to guide policymakers and global leaders in government and business through a robust program of publications, conferences, policy briefings, and recommendations.
Senior policymakers, both at home and abroad, seek out Hudson Institute research and analysis.
Headquartered in Washington, DC, Hudson Institute convenes leading officials with policy experts to deliberate on today's most pressing issues on foreign and domestic policy, national security, economics, and international relations. In an era of sharp partisan divides, Hudson works across the aisle to address challenges.
Our research and analysis are targeted to key audiences to shape the debate and influence policy.
For more than 60 years, Hudson’s research has championed policies in pursuit of security, freedom, and prosperity.
“I regularly rely on Hudson Institute scholars to help inform my thinking and the way I help shape policy here in the Senate.”
–Senator Tom Cotton
