The Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies (IASPS) is an Israel-based think tank with an affiliated office in Washington, D.C. It was founded in 1984 by its president, Professor Robert Loewenberg.[1] According to the institute its mission is "to call attention to the Redirection of Western peoples by Science & the OpenSociety-History: Policy in the Era of the Convergence of Western Elites and Islam."[2][not in citation given]

Political stance[edit]

In the US, IASPS has connections with the neoconservative movement in American politics.[3] The institute is notable for its Clean Break report which is considered "a kind of US-Israeli neoconservative manifesto" according to journalist Jason Vest.[4]
