Ken Masugi is a senior fellow of the Claremont Institute.

 

Dr. Masugi has extensive experience in government and academia. Following his initial appointment at the Claremont Institute (1982-86), he was a special assistant to then-Chairman Clarence Thomas of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (1986-1990). After his years in Washington, he held visiting university appointments at James Madison College of Michigan State University and the Ashbrook Center of Ashland University. He was John M. Olin Distinguished Visiting Professor at the U.S. Air Force Academy.

With Brian Janiskee, Dr. Masugi is co-author of Democracy in California: Politics and Government in the Golden State (Rowman & Littlefield, 2004) and co-editor of The California Republic: Institutions, Statemanship, and Policies (Rowman & Littlefield, 2004). He is co-editor of seven other books on American politics and political thought. His current book project is a work on citizenship and multiculturalism, which uses the standards of the American Founding to critique the comtemporary attack on a common citizenship.

He is the author of numerous essays and reviews of works on political theory, constitutional law, public policy, and films. Dr. Masugi has also published in the popular press, including the Los Angeles Times, Orange County Register, Washington Post, Washington Times, National Review, and the Weekly Standard. He also sits on the editorial boards of Perspectives on Political Science and Interpretation.
