It lists its aims as follows:[2]

  • The Thatcher Center will focus on how the United States and Great Britain can lead and change the world
  • The Center will strengthen the critically important relationship between the United States and Great Britain
  • The Center will act as an important bridge across the Atlantic, linking conservatives in the U.S., UK and Europe
  • The Center will help nurture a global network of conservative thinkers committed to the transatlantic alliance and the cause of freedom across the world
  • The Center will advance the conservative revolution begun by Lady Thatcher

It further states:[3]

The U.S.-UK special relationship must remain pivotal to long-term U.S. strategic thinking, and a cornerstone of NATO and the transatlantic alliance. The Anglo-U.S. partnership is critical to victory in the war on terror, and the disarming of rogue states such as Iran, Syria and North Korea. The Thatcher Center will strengthen the ties that bind the United States and Great Britain, and will work toward framing a joint U.S.-British approach to fighting terror and confronting rogue nations. It will seek to both preserve and advance the Special Relationship as a chief foreign policy priority in Washington and London. The Thatcher Center will also explore the concept of an ‘Anglosphere’ drawing together the English-speaking nations of the world.
