We have been honored to host some of the world’s most prominent leaders, including presidents, Nobel Prize laureates and royalty from a multitude of regions, cultures and political backgrounds. All have inspired and informed our audiences, giving fresh perspectives to key public policy issues away from the insular world of Washington politics — just as our honorary chair, James A. Baker, III, envisioned 20 years ago when the institute was no more than ideas on a blueprint.

In addition to the statesmen hosted by our research programs, the institute is pleased to collaborate with our corporate sponsors to bring you the Shell Distinguished Lecture Series and the Chevron Excellence in Energy Lecture Series.
