November 22, 2010: News, Research & Events from the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy
Dear friends,

It is a great pleasure to share with you the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy's 2010 Annual Report. This report provides an overview of the institute's essential public policy role as a nonpartisan, independent resource for policymakers, scholars, students and the public.

At a time when our nation is facing critical domestic and foreign policy challenges, our public policy programs provided cutting-edge research and analysis on many pressing topics. Our Health Economics Program released a timely study analyzing children's health insurance; our Science and Technology Policy Program published reports on stem cell policy and global scientific collaboration; and our Conflict Resolution Program offered policymakers a blueprint for the territorial component of an Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement. Some of the key leaders who guided the unification of Germany 20 years ago gathered at the institute to reflect on the occasion. The Baker Institute Energy Forum was regularly quoted in the national media on key energy issues including U.S. energy policy and carbon management, natural gas plays and complementary energy sources to hydrocarbon solutions.

Our fellows disseminated their work via conferences, newspaper op-eds, journal articles and meetings with senior government officials, scholars, business, nongovernmental and religious leaders. The institute established a presence on Facebook and Twitter, and launched a blog and e-mail newsletter.

We also took another step forward in engaging the next generation of policymakers by expanding our teaching courses to Rice University students and offering dynamic internship opportunities in Houston, Washington, D.C., and around the world.

I hope you will find our 2010 annual report interesting and informative.

Sincerely,
Edward P. Djerejian
Ambassador Edward P. Djerejian
Founding Director
