The Brookings Institution is a nonprofit public policy organization based in Washington, DC that is 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 its more than 200 scholars represent diverse points of view.
Brookings's 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.
