March

In many contemporary armed conflicts, belligerent parties fight not only on the battlefield, but also on the diplomatic front in the world’s capitals. In Washington and other US cities, warring groups often hire high-profile public relations professionals in order to gain access to US policymakers and influence policy. This brief, by Bush School faculty member Reyko Huang, uses the ongoing conflict in Libya to illustrate the foreign war lobby in the United States and examine why fighting groups hire American lobbyists, far from the war front.

Programs

The Mosbacher Institute is committed to identifying policies and practices that promote global market integration. Global market integration involves increased economic interdependence among nations and regions arising from reduced trade barriers and improved coordination of fiscal and monetary policies. It has been shown to foster economic growth, raise living standards, and promote world peace. As the world becomes more globalized, policymakers need to know how to harness the powerful tools of trade to improve the stable development of emerging countries and living standards here in the United States.

The Mosbacher Institute takes a fact-based, economic approach to comparing the world’s energy options, evaluating the true costs of energy, encouraging the coordination of global policy responses to energy security, and promoting smarter energy policy. Sound energy policy that balances cheap, clean, and secure energy, while relying extensively on markets, is an essential foundation for economic growth.

The Mosbacher Institute aims to identify good governance practices and policies in our domestic economy, and to propose solutions to correct failures and inefficiencies in the provision of public services. Good governance increases the efficiency of the public sector and lowers the costs of doing business for the private sector, thereby increasing America’s competitiveness in the global marketplace. The Institute focuses on governance in such key public policy areas as education, health, environment, and emergency management.
