The Brookings Institution is a nonprofit public policy organization based in Washington, DC. Our mission is to conduct high-quality, independent research and, based on that research, to provide innovative, practical recommendations that advance three broad goals: -Strengthen American democracy; -Foster the economic and social welfare, security and opportunity of all Americans and -Secure a more open, safe, prosperous and cooperative international system. Brookings is proud to be consistently ranked as the most influential, most quoted and most trusted think tank. The research agenda and recommendations of Brookings’s experts are rooted in open-minded inquiry and our scholars represent diverse points of view. More than 200 resident and nonresident fellows research issues; write books, papers, articles and opinion pieces; testify before congressional committees and participate in dozens of public events each year. The Institution’s president, Strobe Talbott, is responsible for setting policies that maintain Brookings’s reputation for quality, independence and impact.   Funding Brookings is financed through the support of philanthropic foundations, corporations and private individuals as well as through an endowment. These friends of the Institution respect our experts’ independence to pose questions, search for answers and present their findings in the way that they see fit. The board of trustees is composed of distinguished business executives, academics, former government officials and community leaders. An International Advisory Committee is composed of corporate and government leaders from fifteen countries.   GLOBAL ECONOMY AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM The Global Economy and Development program aims to shape the U.S. and international policy debate on how to manage globalization and fight global poverty. The program is home to leading scholars from around the world, who use their expertise in international macroeconomics, political economy, international relations and development and environmental economics to tackle some of today’s most pressing development challenges. Global Economy and Development experts draw on the core strengths of Brookings—authoritative, independent and nonpartisan research, a depth of practical expertise and unparalleled convening power—to address three critical areas: -The drivers of the global economy -The road out of poverty -Global public goods Global Economy and Development is led by Kemal Derviş, who previously served as the head of United Nations Development Programme and as Turkey’s Treasury secretary.
