The Bosnian Institute, a UK Registered Charity, was founded by Quintin Hoare in July 1997 with a grant from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. It carries out its aims through a broad range of current and projected activities with the continuing support of the Packard Humanities Institute, a number of other donors, and the Friends of the Bosnian Institute. It also publishes a bimonthly magazine, The Bosnia Report. Its Board of Trustees is chaired by the neoconservative historian Noel Malcolm, with other Balkan specialists such as Bojan Bujic, Cambridge historian Brendan Simms and journalist Melanie McDonagh.
NB: Marko Atilla Hoare is the son of Quintin Hoare and Branka Magaš.
