About the Blog

“The High Horse” is a blog about think tank ethics and governance.  It is also part of my two-year book project on the same subject at Harvard University’s Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics.  I hope to foster a constructive conversation among think tank executives, scholars, policymakers, the media, and the public about the ethical challenges of think tank work, and that this conversation will generate practical new ideas as well as a set of best practices for think tanks striving to promote research excellence and scholarly integrity.  I share some additional thoughts about my blog and book project here.
