This year the Stimson Center celebrates its 30th anniversary – three decades of pragmatic efforts to promote security and prosperity around the globe.

In this video, Barry Blechman and Michael Krepon describe the unique role they believed we could play when they founded Stimson, along with some of their most proud memories of the impact the organization has achieved. Today, in a time of change reminiscent of our end-of-Cold War origins, the Stimson Center’s spirit of innovation, independence and pragmatism is as necessary as it was then.

30 Years of Peacekeeping at Stimson

The Stimson Center has a 30-year track record of leadership on peacekeeping and protecting civilians in conflict areas. Even as threats change, our dedication to addressing the challenge is firm.

This anniversary year, be on the lookout for more videos as we recall some of our accomplishments of the past thirty years, and share our plans for the future.
