The Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business and Government helps to develop solutions to some of society's most challenging problems at the interface of business and government. It is a catalyst, convener, and innovator at the critical intersection where private enterprise meets governance. In the United States and around the world, we promote economic growth while helping public officials promulgate fair, thoughtful and efficient policies. Bringing together thought leaders from both the public and private sectors, and drawing on the unparalleled intellectual resources of the Kennedy School and Harvard University, we examine the issues, create a dialogue, and seek answers.

More now than at any time in recent memory, we realize that strong economies and stable governments -- aligned with society's values -- form the foundation for prosperity and peace. And we have seen that it takes cooperation and leadership to reconcile robust and efficient markets with society's demand for equitable outcomes and to achieve public legitimacy and trust.

For almost two decades, our researchers and teachers have created a common ground where leaders from the public and private sectors meet to work on vital issues at the intersection of business, government, and civil society. We provide a forum in which key players from both sectors can come together, understand each other's perspective, and seek consensus -- honestly and effectively -- with expert help from our faculty.
