The Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft is a U.S. think tank founded in 2019 and located in Washington, D.C. It promotes "ideas that move U.S. foreign policy away from endless war and toward vigorous diplomacy in the pursuit of international peace."[1]

History

Initial funding for the group, which will officially launch in November 2019,[2] includes half a million dollars each from the Open Society Foundation (George Soros) and the Koch Foundation (Charles Koch).[3]

The think tank is named after U.S. President John Quincy Adams, who as Secretary of State said, in a speech on July 4, 1821, that the U.S. "goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy".[4]

David Klion writes: "Quincy's founding members say again and again that 9/11 and the Iraq War were turning points in their careers."[5]
