The Brookings Institution is a nonprofit public policy organization based in Washington, DC.

It conducts independent research and, based on that research, provides practical recommendations that advance three broad goals:

  • Strengthening American democracy;
  • Fostering the economic and social welfare, security and opportunity of all Americans and
  • Securing a more open, safe, prosperous and cooperative international system.


It also operates the Brookings-Tsinghua Center in Beijing.
