Rediscovering Conservatism

May 25-25, 2022
Omni Shoreham 2500 Calvert St NW, Washington, DC 20008
5:00 P.M.

A forum on the future of the Right


What kind of conservatism do we want our children to know and love?

In his new book, Conservatism: a Rediscovery, political theorist Yoram Hazony argues that conservatives must rediscover the Anglo-American roots of conservatism and creatively apply the wisdom of the Federalist Party of Washington, Adams, and Hamilton to the challenges of today.

Yoram’s perspective is causing a new series of discussions from all parts of the Right.

That’s why we’re thrilled to invite you to join us for ISI’s Modern Age panel discussion, Rediscovering Conservatism, on May 25th at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C.

This discussion will feature Hazony, chairman of the Edmund Burke Foundation, Matthew Continetti, author of The Right: The Hundred Year War for American Conservatism, and Kevin Roberts, president of the Heritage Foundation. This panel will be a defining moment for conservatism in the 21st century as these brilliant minds explore questions related to Western democracy, our religious and cultural traditions, free markets, and the American model.

This is a free event open to the public and will be proceeded by a 5:00 p.m. reception preceding the event. Yoram Hazony and Matthew Continetti will sign books following the discussion.



Yoram Hazony is President of the Herzl Institute in Jerusalem, and currently serves as Chairman of the Edmund Burke Foundation, a public affairs institute based in Washington that has hosted the National Conservatism Conference since 2019. He is the host of NatConTalk, an interview program on politics, religion, and philosophy, and is the author or co-author of several books, including his two most recent books The Revelation at Sinai: What Does “Torah from Heaven” Mean? and Conservatism: A Rediscovery.
