The Claremont Institute
With its mission to “to teach the practical application of the principles of the American Founding to the next generation of Conservative leaders, and to build them into a community dedicated to preserving constitutional government,” the Claremont Institute has for over 30 years been a strong and effective leader in the movement for limited government, free markets, and a strong national defense. Founded in1979, the Claremont Institute publishes the Claremont Review of Books, sponsors the Publius, Lincoln and John Marshall Fellowships for rising conservative leaders, and administers a variety of programs on politics and constitutionalism. The Claremont Institute’s focus is on the principles that must inform sound policy rather than the day-to-day policy itself. A recovery of the American idea requires engaging and winning the battle of ideas.
