The Goldwater Institute is Arizona’s premier policy research organization. In keeping with the principles advanced by Senator Barry Goldwater, the Goldwater Institute is dedicated to protecting and expanding economic freedom, constitutional liberty and educational opportunity. The Goldwater Institute meets public policy challenges with innovative solutions that maximize our freedoms and keep government within its constitutional boundaries. The Goldwater Institute has been a policy architect for many successful reforms, including school choice laws, initiatives to protect private property and tax relief. When good ideas aren’t enough, sometimes what you need is a good lawyer. The Goldwater Institute's Scharf-Norton Center for Constitutional Litigation defends our constitutional liberties and protects taxpayers against unconstitutional expansions of government power.
