We are dedicated to Dialogue

Here at the Baines Report we are dedicated to creating a space to discuss policy and impacts, whether on the local, national or global level. While we do accept contributions from a wide range of students, professors and policy professionals, our editorial staff makes sure that each piece meets our mission requirements.

Range of policy topics

Very rarely does a policy fall neatly into categories. On our sidebar, we feature a range of topics. Don’t see what you are looking for? Contact us and we will find someone to fill the gap. Or, better yet, write for us!

Not your average policy blog

Our large contributor base means that the Baines Report features a wide range of opinions and backgrounds. We also accept outside contributions , however our corestaff is completely comprised of LBJ school graduate students
