The Cordell Hull Institute is an independent think tank that promotes analysis and public discussion of issues in international economic relations, focusing primarily on trade, investment and competition policies.

It does this to encourage:

         the integration of developing countries into the world economy

         adjustment in industrialized countries to increasing trade with developing ones

         the opening of developing-country markets to stimulate the adjustment and investment needed to promote their own economic growth and development

The Institute honors the vision and perseverance of Cordell Hull, U.S. Secretary of State in 1933-1944, in pursuing the idea of an international economic order as the basis for peace and prosperity in the world.
