Foreign Policy

We support scholarship that speaks to America's enduring interests and policies that will make our country safer.

In a complex world, America needs a sensible foreign policy. But in recent decades, our actions and decisions have failed to make us safer. Debates in Washington are often rooted in past conflicts and framed by insiders who demand ever-expanding military budgets and support few options beyond costly intervention. The Charles Koch Foundation funds research on the policies that will keep our country secure and supports new voices and sound scholarship that speak to America’s enduring interests.
