Objectives and Programs


In the pioneering spirit of our namesake, the Mosbacher Institute tackles many of the toughest policy challenges of our time. At the foundation of the Institute’s three research and training programs are three core public policy objectives:

  1. Program in Integration of Global Markets
    Policy Objective: We should embrace economic integration as the best mechanism for raising global standards of living and promoting world peace.

  2. Program in Energy in a Global Economy
    Policy Objective: We must adopt energy policy that balances cheap, clean, and secure energy while relying extensively on markets.

  3. Program in Governance and Public Services
    Policy Objective: To be competitive in the world economy, we must reshape our public institutions to impart good governance and cost-effective provision of public services.

A distinguishing feature of the Mosbacher Institute programs is their integrated design. Each program is not a discrete operation, but contributes to the broader Institute goal of finding inter-related policy solutions. For example, energy policy cannot be treated separately from trade policy when discussing the import and export of oil and natural gas. Together, the three programs create an environment where specialists from all of these areas can synergize their thinking into solving concrete policy problems. The Institute’s design links fields of knowledge in ways that mirror the needs of the global future.

The three core programs have common features. Each program has a Program Director that is a full-time Bush School faculty member actively engaged in research. Each program contributes to the Mosbacher Institute’s policy workshops, speaker series, The Takeaway policy briefs, and conferences. They are also involved in recruiting sponsors and topics for program-related Capstone Seminars.

While integrated, each of the three core programs also features a unique set of activities that marry academic training with real-world policy settings, in ways that are appropriate to their fields. More information about each of the programs can be found on the specific web pages.
