The Volcker Alliance
The Volcker Alliance was launched in 2013 to address the challenge of effective execution of public policies and to rebuild public trust in government. As a nonpartisan organization based in New York City, the Volcker Alliance aims to catalyze new thinking and action with respect to federal, state, and local government in the U.S. and abroad.
Working in partnership with educational institutions, governmental organizations, business groups, and public interest enterprises, the Volcker Alliance will sponsor research on government performance, make actionable recommendations for policy and implementation, and provide a forum for discussion of new ideas and tools to strengthen policy execution at all levels of government. Beyond that, the Alliance is committed to taking actions that contribute to a high degree of confidence in both the decision-making processes of government and in its administrative management.
The Volcker Alliance seeks to rekindle intellectual, practical, and academic interest in the implementation of policy – the "nuts and bolts" of governance – and serve as a catalyst for sustained government improvement.
