Hudson Institute research has always been guided by the importance of culture, religion, the rule of law, and an abiding respect for constitutionalism, all of which help to define the United States and other liberal democratic societies.

Hudson's research provides important contributions to our understanding of the politics, cultures, economies, societies, and security issues in Africa, Asia, China, Canada, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and Russia. Hudson Fellows highlight the strategic connective tissue that transcends countries and regions through analyses of energy security and resource competition, changing political and security coalitions and relationships, the spread of transnational ideologies, the advent of new technologies and enhanced military capabilities, and the evolution of grand strategy among both adversaries and allies.
