The mission of the Claremont Institute is to restore the principles of the American Founding to their rightful, preeminent authority in our national life. These principles are expressed most eloquently in the Declaration of Independence, which proclaims that "all men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights." To recover the founding principles in our political life means recovering a limited and accountable government that respects private property, promotes stable family life, and maintains a strong national defense.
Founded in 1979, the Claremont Institute publishes the Claremont Review of Books, sponsors Publius and Lincoln Fellowships for rising young conservative leaders, and administers a variety of public policy programs, including Americans for Victory Over Terrorism, our Ballistic Missile Defense Project, the Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, the Center for Local Government, and the Salvatori Center for the American Constitution. Our staff regularly provides commentary on current events for national print and broadcast media. Our family of websites includes our homepage, www.claremont.org, our online journal about the relationship between the natural law and jurisprudence, www.right-reason.org, our missile defense site, www.missilethreat.com, and our video interview site, www.theamericanmind-claremont.org. The Claremont Institute's work is national in scope, but gives special emphasis to the problems of our country's most populous state, California, where the Institute is based.
The scholarship and publications of the Claremont Institute extend from strategic to literary studies, from modern economics to classical philosophy—in short, to all those subjects upon which free men must draw to preserve and to perfect their liberty. This scholarship never loses sight of the immutable principles upon which free government is founded or the variable means by which free government must be preserved.
The Claremont Institute is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.
