Foreign Policy Think Tank

The Quincy Institute For Responsible Statecraft is a foreign policy think tank that promotes non-interventionism. Critical of the United States’ foreign policy establishment for its insistence on military deployment, the organization seeks to advocate for “diplomatic engagement and military restraint” by appealing to both conservative and progressive policy makers. [1]

Leadership

The co-founders include Trita Parsi, the former president of the National Iranian American Council; Suzanne DiMaggio, senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment of International Peace; Andrew Bacevich, a retired Army colonel and military historian; and Stephen Wertheim, a historian and visiting assistant professor at Columbia University. [2]

Funding

The organization’s founding donors are Charles Koch and George Soros, who each provided $500,000 at its inception. Another $800,000 was contributed by multiple individual donors [3]
