September 14, 2012

The George W. Bush Institute today announced the appointment of international affairs scholar Dr. Joshua Muravchik as a Fellow in its Human Freedom program. As a fellow, he will contribute to the Institute’s goal of expanding the reach of liberty by fostering democracy and supporting advocates of freedom.

Muravchik is the author of nine books on international politics, including his latest, The Next Founders: Voices of Democracy in the Middle East, which profiles seven Middle Eastern dissidents and their courageous efforts to promote democratic ideals.  He has also published more than 400 articles that have been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, International Herald Tribune, Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, The New York Times Magazine, Commentary, The New Republic, and The Weekly Standard.  His blogs appear regularly at www.worldaffairsjournal.org.

“Joshua Muravchik is one of the nation’s most respected intellectuals in the sphere of democracy and U.S. foreign policy, and we are pleased he is joining the Bush Institute,” said James K. Glassman, Executive Director of the Bush Institute.  “His deep understanding of international affairs and the Middle East will provide the Bush Institute with unmatched insight, especially as Egypt prepares to hold its first free elections this month.”

Muravchik serves on the editorial boards of World Affairs, the Journal of Democracy, and the Journal of International Security Affairs. He formerly served as a member of the State Department’s Advisory Committee on Democracy Promotion; the Commission on Broadcasting to the People’s Republic of China; and the Maryland Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. Previously he was a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. 

The Bush Institute is the innovation arm of the George W. Bush Presidential Center, focused on the research and development of solutions to public and social issues. The Institute targets six areas – human freedom, education reform, global health, economic growth, women, and military service. Muravckik joins Oscar Guevara Morales of Colombia, and Mohsen Sazegara, an Iranian dissident, as fellows in Human Freedom.
