Audits are short essays, written by our scholars, that put the conventional wisdoms of U.S. foreign policy under close scrutiny.

Audits of the Conventional Wisdom

In this series of essays, MIT's Center for International Studies tours the horizon of the conventional wisdoms that animate U.S. foreign policy, and puts them to the test of data and history. By subjecting particularly well-accepted ideas to close scrutiny, we hope to spark discussion and debate, with a result we can all agree on: better foreign policies that lead to a more peaceful and prosperous world.
