IPS is a progressive think tank dedicated to building a more equitable, ecologically sustainable, and peaceful society. In partnership with dynamic social movements, we work to turn transformative policy ideas into action. As Washington’s first progressive multi-issue think tank, IPS has served as a policy and research resource for visionary social justice movements for over five decades — from the anti-war and civil rights movements in the 1960s through the environmental, women’s, anti-corporate and other movements to the anti-war and global justice movements of the 21st century. Today the Institute’s work is organized into a set of interrelated projects, reflecting our public scholars’ diverse areas of expertise. We encourage collaboration at the project level in order to reach our shared vision: we believe everyone has a right to thrive on a planet where all communities are equitable, democratic, peaceful, and sustainable.
