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.
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. Our commitment to the flourishing of democratic societies around the world is the basis for our work on civil society, culture, foreign aid, philanthropy, and the law.
Research at Hudson Institute on economics and finance has always been guided by a realistic but guarded optimism in the long-term ability of markets and technology to shape a more prosperous future.
