Brookings Institution

Washington D.C., United States

The Brookings Institution is a nonprofit public policy organization based in Washington, DC. Its 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, secure a more open, safe, prosperous and cooperative international system. The research agenda and recommendations of Brookings's experts are rooted in open-minded inquiry and its scholars represent diverse points of view. More than 200 resident and non-resident fellows research issues; write books, papers, articles and opinion pieces; testify before congressional committees and participate in dozens of public events each year.
