Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Governance Studies

Viewed as a leading, independent voice in the domestic policymaking sphere, the Governance Studies program at Brookings is dedicated to analyzing policy issues, political institutions and processes, and contemporary governance challenges. Our scholarship identifies areas in need of reform and proposes specific solutions to improve governance worldwide, but with a particular emphasis on the United States. The program is directed by Camille Busette and is home to over 60 resident and non-resident scholars with diverse backgrounds, research interests, and areas of expertise.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Brookings Metro is the nation’s leading source of ideas and action to create more prosperous, just, and resilient communities. In pursuit of our mission to collaborate with local leaders to transform original insights into policy and practical solutions that scale nationally, Brookings Metro produces trusted, actionable research; tests and applies it through regional engagements and national networks; and connects with policymakers at all levels to inform impact at scale.

Population(s) Served
Adults

The Foreign Policy program at Brookings is the leading center of policy-relevant scholarship exploring the major challenges to international peace and security posed by rapidly re-ordering geopolitics of major powers; the disordering relations among states and transnational actors; and changing dynamics in defense, technology, energy, and climate. Our scholars engage in in-depth, nonpartisan research and analysis aimed at advancing solutions to the toughest problems by providing concrete policy recommendations.

Population(s) Served
Adults

The global economy is on an unsustainable path characterized by widening economic and social inequities, environmental degradation, and increasing concentration of poverty and deprivation that threaten global peace and prosperity.

The Global Economy and Development program at Brookings equips global, national, and local policymakers with the cutting-edge knowledge and actionable tools they need to address shared challenges and achieve a more equitable, sustainable, and prosperous economic system for all.

Population(s) Served
Adults

The Brookings Economic Studies program provides analysis of current and emerging economic issues to promote innovative and practical policy solutions. Economic Studies scholars conduct rigorous research and policy analysis and communicate their findings to inform policymakers and the public in the areas of broad-based economic growth, economic opportunity and mobility, inclusive social policy, sound monetary and fiscal policy, and climate-resilient growth.

GuideStar partnered with Equity in the Center - an organization that works to shift mindsets, practices, and systems to increase racial equity - to create this section. Learn more

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
