'Christopher Kruegler became President of The Albert Einstein Institution, Inc. in 1991, in Cambridge, Massachusetts." [1]

Extract from 1991 Newsletter

"After an extensive search, on February 25 [1991] the AEI Board of Directors chose Christopher Kruegler to succeed Gene Sharp as president of the Albert Einstein Institution. Freed from major administrative responsibilities, Dr. Sharp will continue his research, writing, and consulting as senior scholar-in-residence.

"Dr. Kruegler will be the Institution’s sole administrator. The Institution will no longer have an executive director. Stephen Crawford, former executive director of the Einstein Institution, resigned last year for personal reasons and has become executive director of the Center for International Security Studies at Maryland.

"Dr. Kruegler has worked at the Program on Nonviolent Sanctions in Harvard University’s Center for International Affairs since the program was founded in 1983. He has been the program’s director for the past two years and will remain so until a new program director is appointed. Prior to his tenure at the Program on Nonviolent Sanctions, Dr. Kruegler directed the Peace Studies Program at the University of Missouri-Columbia.

"He has served on the Boards of the Einstein Institution since 1985 and the Civilian-Based Defense Association from 1982 to 1987. He holds a B.A. and an M.A. in peace studies from Manhattan College and Antioch International and a Ph.D. in social science from Syracuse University. His dissertation explored the intellectual history of civilian-based defense, with special reference to the work of Sir Basil Liddell Hart. Dr. Kruegler is currently working with AEI board member Peter Ackerman on Strategic Nonviolent Conflict, a comparative study of six cases of mass nonviolent struggle, leading to the construction of a comprehensive strategic model."
