Do You Want to be Part of Bringing Together the Academic and Policy Worlds?
Our Policy Research Seminars bridge the gap between the academic and policy worlds by connecting liberty-advancing scholars to policy research organizations. IHS Policy Research Seminars offer graduate students and faculty a unique opportunity to collaborate with public policy experts, and to discuss and shape their research on topics where the classical liberal perspective may be underrepresented.
Are You Planning To Attend Academic Conferences This Year?
Our seminars are often attached to academic conferences, spanning a wide range of disciplines, and are held all over the United States. Not only do our seminars provided a platform for collaboration and networking, but we also provide hotel and travel reimbursement that can offset the costs of attending your favorite academic conference.
Our Faculty Programs team is heavily invested in supporting academics through the advancement of their careers, and fostering opportunities where ideas can influence the political decision-making process.
To inquire about participating, please email Justin Davis at policyresearch@TheIHS.org.
In this seminar, regulators will discuss their experience on different aspects of regulating the financial system such as bank regulations, securities markets regulations, insurance industry regulations, and regulation of financial technology. Academic researchers will also provide perspectives on how they view impacts of financial regulations and alternative approaches they have researched.
In the face of climate change and economic uncertainty, balancing competing demands for water is a growing challenge. The goal of this seminar is to discuss and discover policy solutions for the following questions: What can we learn from the developing world? What institutional arrangements in the United States can serve as models for growing urban populations? What policy reforms will help foster the development of robust water markets in arid regions? What is the role of government?
The goal of the seminar is two-fold: to inform people about how the Jones Act harms the economy in myriad ways without providing security benefits, and to introduce the audience to the Mercatus Center’s new Program on the American Economy and Globalization (PAEG). In this seminar, researchers and stakeholders will discuss their experiences with different aspects of the Jones Act such as cost-benefit analyses, concerns surrounding security and safety including emergency disaster response, trade, energy, agriculture, outsourcing, and equity among regions and industries. Academic researchers will also provide perspectives on how they view impacts of the Jones Act and alternative approaches they have researched.
