    MacArthur Award for Creative & Effective Institutions

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Henry L. Stimson Center is a nonprofit, nonpartisan institution devoted to enhancing international peace and security through a combination of rigorous analysis and outreach to policymakers. It seeks to engage policymakers and other experts to craft recommendations that are cross-partisan, actionable, and effective. The purpose of this grant is to help Stimson build financial reserves and a communications strategy. This will allow it to enhance its long-term institutional sustainability.

  • $600,000Active Strategy

    Conservation & Sustainable Development

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Henry L. Stimson Center ("Stimson") will focus on drivers and impacts of uncoordinated hydropower development. Stimson will engage with high level decision-makers to present well-documented evidence that these planned dams threaten national food security, have serious socioeconomic impacts that may threaten domestic stability in some cases, and also result in inequitable transboundary impacts. We believe that framing the hydropower development issue as threat to regional cooperation and, potentially even regional stability will have more traction with decision-makers than conservation-based arguments.

    International Peace & Security

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Stimson Center is a nonprofit, nonpartisan institution devoted to enhancing international peace and security through a combination of rigorous analysis and outreach. The purpose of this grant is to promote market-based industry solutions to the proliferation threat. Stimson will engage four discrete industry sectors about their role in the potential proliferation supply chain -- traditional dual use technology manufacturers, the US domestic radiopharmaceutical sector, the ocean borne shipping industry, and the insurance sector. Funds will be used for partial salary support, honoraria, travel, workshops, and publications. This grant supports the Foundation's Nuclear Security Strategy, which aims to prevent nuclear terrorism.
