Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis and Stephen Walt bring decades of experience and thought leadership in interrogating America’s over-militarized foreign policy.
WASHINGTON, DC — Today, the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft (QI) announced
the appointment of two accomplished national figures to its growing governing board.
Joining as directors are Reverend Dr. Liz Theoharis, Director of the Kairos Center for Religions,
Rights, and Social Justice at Union Theological Seminary and Co-Chair of the Poor People’s
Campaign, and Stephen Walt, the Robert and Renée Belfer Professor of International Affairs at
the Harvard Kennedy School. They will join a board that includes retired ambassadors, business
and philanthropic leaders, journalists, faith and civic leaders, and distinguished academics
committed to the Quincy Institute’s mission of reconceptualizing U.S. foreign policy away from
war and domination toward peace and greater cooperation.
“Liz Theoharis and Steve Walt bring to QI’s board powerhouse intellects combined with a strong
moral sensibility,” said Quincy Institute chairman and cofounder Andrew Bacevich. “We
welcome them to our ranks and look forward to a productive partnership.”
“We are thrilled that Steve and Liz will be contributing their vision, expertise and organizing to
help right size U.S. spending on war relative to the other threats facing the American people and
ensure that war is rendered a last resort by America’s political leaders,” added CEO Lora
Founded in 2019, the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft is an action-oriented think tank
that is bringing together a broad coalition of Americans from across the political spectrum to end
endless wars and bottomless military spending.
