Founded in 1980, the EastWest Institute is a global, action-oriented think-and-do tank. We are a not-for-profit institution focused on confronting critical challenges that endanger peace. Our fiercely-guarded independence is ensured by the diversity of our international board of directors and our supporters.
To be a forceful and constructive voice within and between East and West on peace and security matters, while serving as a discreet worldwide hub for Track 2 and semi-official Track 1.5 diplomacy.
To mobilize and connect the intellectual, human, and resource capacities needed to create a more peaceful, just and stable world order.
To bridge and inspire government, business, civil society and global self-organizing social network groups to take effective collective action.
