Institutions exercise great power over our lives, both today and far into the future.
Yet on issues from COVID to climate change, our leaders too often misjudge risks, make choices based on political expediency, and fail to imagine wiser alternatives when it counts the most.
We analyze how and in what ways institutions’ decisions influence people’s lives.
We study how key institutions currently make decisions.
We identify interventions that might cause those institutions to take actions that lead to better global outcomes.
We mobilize funding and talent to execute on the most promising interventions.
Alongside all of this, we are building an interdisciplinary network of reformers to share insights, coordinate efforts, and steadily increase the odds of success over time.
