About JMI

The James Madison Institute is a Florida-based research and educational organization (501c3) engaged in the battle of ideas. The Institute’s ideas are rooted in a belief in the U.S. Constitution and such timeless ideals as limited government, economic freedom, federalism, and individual liberty coupled with individual responsibility.

Mission

The Institute’s mission is to keep the citizens of Florida informed about their government and to shape our state’s future through the advancement of practical free-market ideas on public policy issues. The Institute achieves its mission through research, conferences and seminars, and a variety of publications. Since its inception in 1987, the Institute has remained independent, nonprofit, and nonpartisan.

Why James Madison Institute?

Mr. Madison said it himself: “I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.”

Silent we are not and silence on matter of public policy in Florida would be an abridgement of our mission. To keep Floridians informed about their government and to advance practical public policy solutions is the essence of our mission. James Madison, we believe, would have approved and no name could better suit the Institute.
