Our Mission

The front of Baker Hall, from across the plaza, with fountain in foreground

From the campus of Rice University, the Baker Institute has established itself as a world-class policy research organization, raising a unique voice in the most critical debates facing Texas, the U.S., and the world. 

Our mission is to:

  • Conduct rigorous, data-driven research on critical foreign and domestic issues.
  • Provide timely, nonpartisan analysis on critical issues facing the world.
  • Convene productive discourse among public and private sector leaders.
  • Train the next generation of policy researchers and leaders.

Our independent perspective has allowed the Baker Institute to distinguish itself among peer organizations and rise to the top of the global rankings among university-affiliated think tanks. 

The strong reputation of the Baker Institute is a testament to the vision of Secretary James A. Baker, III, and the leadership of founding director Ambassador Edward P. Djerejian. In this 30th year of the institute, we are ideally positioned to build upon our impressive foundation of excellence.

Our People

Energy experts and guests at a reception

The Baker Institute is home to more than 170 researchers and affiliated experts from academia, the private sector, and government. 

The range of interdisciplinary expertise provided by our experts contributes to the institute’s dynamic research agenda, which includes economics and finance; energy and sustainability; health, science, and technology; presidential elections; trade and border security and more.  Our research agenda evolves as our knowledge deepens and global challenges unfold. 

Baker Institute fellows and scholars serve as interpreters within their areas of expertise. Our experts are in high demand as thought leaders, advisors, spokespeople, and expert witnesses. In 2023, Baker Institute experts earned more than 35,000 media citations in the most trusted media outlets across the globe. 

Our Principles

Engage in rigorous, interdisciplinary research: At the core of the institute’s work is a commitment to rigorous, data-driven research. Every endeavor is underpinned by a systematic and evidence-based approach, emphasizing the importance of credible sources to draw meaningful conclusions. Our methodology not only ensures the integrity of the institute’s findings but also cultivates a culture of precision and excellence. 

Provide an independent perspective: Based in Houston, Texas — itself a hub of diversity, innovation, and influence — the institute has unparalleled access to industries and issues that are shaping today’s foreign and domestic public policy. With our proximity to the largest energy and medical centers globally, as well as the U.S.-Mexico border, the Baker Institute provides the ideal locale for public and private sector engagement in policy discourse.

Remain resolutely nonpartisan: In an increasingly polarized democratic society, the Baker Institute’s commitment to nonpartisan, open dialogue is more important than ever. From Houston, the most diverse city in America, and away from the beltway of D.C., the institute provides a unique, independent perspective. 

Innovate with digital-first communications: The Baker Institute takes a nimble, digital-first approach to communications to stay current with the rapidly evolving policy landscape. In 2023, the institute embarked on a transformative, multiplatform rebranding initiative to foster a more unified, audience-centered visual identity. The results allow us to leverage digital platforms to disseminate and translate our work to stakeholders around the world.

Maintain timely and relevant perspective: As geopolitical events unfold, our experts provide context and unbiased insights to help shape public understanding. In 2023, the Baker Institute launched the Baker Briefing podcast — a platform for our experts to offer rapid-response commentary and foster informed discussions. We are committed to remaining nimble to promote a deeper comprehension of the most critical issues of the day.

Foster civic leadership: Students are crucial contributors to the Baker Institute’s work. This year, more than 50 students served as interns and research assistants. Through their engagement with the institute, they gain critical skills in research, policymaking, and communications — the kinds of opportunities that are key for cultivating the next generation of informed citizens and policy leaders.

Core to our mission is convening productive discourse. The Baker Institute provides a politically neutral space for dialogue, debate, and discussion. In 2023, we held more than 100 events at the Institute, including keynote lectures, panel discussions, conferences, and workshops. Our programming brought together thought leaders in industry, government, and academia to explore issues of urgency facing Texas, the U.S., and the world. The institute’s events offer an important forum for education, engagement, and translating ideas into action.  

The majority of Baker Institute events are free and open to the public in Houston, Texas, and beyond. Our programming is also live streamed to attendees around the world.

A Year of Impact: Raising a Meaningful Voice

1) Providing Leadership During the Israel-Hamas War

On Oct. 15, President Biden appointed Ambassador David M. Satterfield, director of the Baker Institute, as Special Envoy for Middle East Humanitarian Issues. He has since led U.S. diplomatic efforts to address the humanitarian crisis in Gaza in coordination with the United Nations and U.S. partners. Meanwhile, Baker Institute fellows and scholars provided real-time expert analysis of the conflict, helping the world comprehend the war as it unfolded.

2) Advancing Global Energy Transitions

The global interconnectedness of energy markets has a great impact on the pace and scale of regional energy transitions; legacy, scale, technology, and the principle of comparative advantage are critical for the future of energy. Our research and commentary on energy transitions in 2023 explored these complexities — noting how policy and economics influence investment and trade, and seed risks and opportunities for companies and governments alike as they navigate an evolving energy landscape. 

In 2023, our research argued that carbon, with the appropriate technological innovations in materials and chemistry, could move from being perceived of as a global liability to a highly valued resource that could propel energy innovations in hydrogen. We asked critical questions about the intersection of new energy resources, waste and environmental sustainability. We continued to examine developments across ERCOT, and set forth a compelling argument that Texas is ideally positioned to play a leading role in driving U.S. hydrogen market development. We analyzed multiple facets of U.S. natural gas and liquified natural gas (LNG) exports. We analyzed the deep intersections of energy markets and geopolitics on a regional and global level, and we expanded on a more comprehensive, systems-level approach to sustainability.

3) Understanding Geopolitics and Energy Security

In the past year, as international events unfolded, energy security and geopolitics remained at the forefront. Amid the global flashpoints of the past year — the Russia-Ukraine war and the Israel-Hamas war — as well as intensifying discourse around energy access and greenhouse gas emissions, energy security remained a topic of great interest. 

Our experts highlighted the importance of U.S LNG exports for European gas market balance as the Russia-Ukraine war continues. We raised the implications of highly concentrated supply chains for minerals and materials critical for energy, and explored energy developments in Latin America. As the conflict in Gaza unfolded, we asked important questions about the region’s volatility creates geopolitical risk that could dissuade investment — and the resulting consequences for energy markets. 

Our work also monitored the global climate policy schism between wealthy, developed nations and the poorer and energy-hungry developing world, the so-called “North-South” divide that carries substantial implications for global trade and energy security.

4) Achieving Global Sustainability

Achieving sustainability across the energy and resource landscape requires a systems-level approach. In 2023, our experts responded to trends in the public and private sector by arguing for a multifaceted framework for sustainability. “Achieving sustainability, in its truest form, requires a systems-level approach that considers a wide array of environmental, social, and economic factors and assesses how they interact,” Rachel A. Meidl and Kenneth B. Medlock III argue

A broad set of interdisciplinary work illustrates how the institute activated this framework during 2023. Experts published extensive research on the Texas grid, and how policymaker action and infrastructure improvements must coalesce in order to achieve stability. We provided a new framework for the United Nations to advance its development goals. And we tackled vexing questions in the global conversation on sustainability, such as whether carbon should be considered a global liability or a valuable resource.

5) Understanding the US-Mexico Relationship

Our experts study all aspects of the U.S.-Mexico binational relationship — including economic, social, cultural, security, political, diplomatic and cross-border issues. In 2023, our research focused on understanding the public policy challenges and opportunities for nearshoring, launching a three-year project with a workshop focused on energy and electricity. We concluded a project on trade in North America with an edited volume exploring the USMCA, China, and World Trade Organization. And our annual flagship report, Mexico Country Outlook, explored critical issues facing Mexico.

Our work also looked ahead to Mexico’s presidential elections in 2024, wrapping up a project with El Colegio de Mexico focused on Mexico’s democracy. Our “Mexico 2025 and Beyond” series included a lecture by Supreme Court Justice Alfredo Gutierrez Ortiz Mena and a virtual series, “Zoom in on Mexico’s Elections,” featured guest speakers from academia and government. We also published works on Mexico’s democratic stability and political newcomer Xóchitl Gálvez. The institute continued to highlight our research on immigration and the U.S. labor market with publications focused on TN visas, policy and advocacy, amnesty, and immigration reform.

The center also celebrated its 10th anniversary with a dinner and conversation with His Excellency Esteban Moctezuma Barragán, ambassador of Mexico to the U.S. (pictured).

6) Nonpartisan Perspectives on US Elections 

As the U.S. prepares for the 2024 presidential election, the institute convened a number of conversations on critical issues facing U.S. democracy. Indeed, the nation continues to adjust to the changed dynamics and public discourse around elections in the United States. Our experts provided commentary, locally and nationally, on political dynamics in Texas and across the country. Our trusted, nonpartisan perspective allowed stakeholders of all political parties and groups to better understand the changing dynamics of democracy in America.

7) Curbing the Overdose Epidemic

The overdose epidemic in the U.S. has forced a reckoning with the nation’s drug strategy. At the state, federal, and local levels, policymakers are grappling with the challenges of reducing the death, disease, crime, and suffering associated with drug use. In 2023, we advanced pragmatic, fact-based solutions as policymakers at all levels of government entertained drug-related policies. Our experts provided insight on new federal initiatives, including President Biden’s federal initiative to curb the growing use of xylazine-laced fentanyl and rule changes proposed by the Drug Enforcement Administration. In Texas, we sought to advance meaningful policy changes by advancing fact-based solutions. Through research and bipartisan government engagement, our experts have provided much-needed facts and analysis to the national debate.

8) Preventing Firearm Injury Among Children

Firearm injury is the number one cause of death among children in the United States. Our research in firearm injury prevention considers the public health implications of firearm injury and the medical community response. In 2023, our research focused on advancing practical and politically viable policy solutions to promote community safety, such as waiting periods and safety courses. On June 2, the institute held its second annual Firearm Injury Prevention and Safety (FIPS) symposium. Our experts also elevated options for advancing injury prevention through other means, such as modifying the Consumer Product Safety Act.


9) Combating Scientific Misinformation

In 2023, our “Vaccines Cause Adults” public information campaign brought together students, scientists, and policymakers to better understand research-driven, factual information about vaccines. The initiative sought to translate scientific research into clear and accessible resources for lawmakers. Our work also focused on genomic monitoring, weighing the pros and cons of federal agencies tracking wastewater to advance public health. Finally, we sought to understand how federal agencies can create incentives for universities to prioritize research innovation.

10) Boosting Brain and Mental Health

Brain health is an established policy concept on the global stage and it is quickly gaining traction and support in the United States. In 2023, Baker Institute efforts explored policy challenges related to the nation’s youth mental health crisis, including the barriers to care and potential policy solutions. Our experts also explored “brain health”: an emerging, interdisciplinary framework for addressing mental health challenges. Brain and mental health disorders create an economic burden on families and communities, and policymakers must invest in creativity and innovation so the U.S. can compete economically with near-peer competitors. Our experts convened numerous forums for exploring solutions under the framework of “brain health.” In December, we hosted a colloquium to explore the potential for Houston, Texas to lead innovation in this area and also championed the concept with presentations at the United Nations, COP23, and the World Health Organization.


11) Prioritizing Public Finance in a Changing World

This year, policymakers at all levels of government faced immense pressure to take action on a number of pressing economic challenges. In 2023, our experts provided high-level perspectives on consumer trends and dug into post-pandemic relief programs. We sought to explain the tax implications of emerging technologies — such as crypto currencies, electric vehicles, influencer marketers, and artificial intelligence tools. We explored finance policy at the federal level, looking back at 75 years of property tax research and looking ahead to the potential for a U.S. default. And we provided a deep dive into the City of Houston’s finances, providing a sobering snapshot of the most pressing fiscal issues facing the city.

12) Transforming US Health Care

Americans spend more than $4 trillion each year on health — far more than any other developed country. Yet, U.S. health outcomes do not reflect a sufficient return on investment. Americans experience rates of obesity, maternal mortality, and infant mortality that are much higher than comparable developed countries. In 2023, the institute launched a research initiative focused on improving the health systems and outcomes in the United States. 

The research agenda included exploring hospital costs. Our research examined compliance with transparency rules by Texas hospitals, pricing and transparency among top national hospitals, and pricing comparison among Texas Medical Center hospitals. Our work also explored non-medical services in the delivery of health care. This year, we co-established the Texas Consortium for the Non-Medical Drivers of Health, an initiative bringing researchers, practitioners, and policymakers together to advance the integration of non-medical interventions into the health care system. Finally, our research tracked the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) as a means of expanding access to health care for all. Our research explored the impact of the ACA Marketplace, options for obtaining universal coverage, opportunities to improve the ACA, and Medicaid expansion.

The institute’s fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30. For the fiscal year ending June 30, 2023, the Baker Institute received $13.5 million in revenue and had $13.0 million in expenses.

Distributed earnings from the Baker Institute’s endowment (46%) and current-use gifts from supporters (37%) represented the two largest sources of revenue this fiscal year. Revenue from research grants constituted 16% of the institute’s total revenue. The institute received 1% of total revenue from Rice University funds.

Expenses from the institute’s policy centers and programs continue to represent the largest expense category: 78% of all expenditures. This category includes research staff salaries and sponsored research project expenses. Remaining costs consist of general operating expenses from administrative staff salaries, communications and fundraising expenses, to building maintenance and improvement costs.
