Financial Regulatory Reform Initiative Internship Description
The Bipartisan Policy Center’s Financial Regulatory Reform Initiative (FRRI) will analyze and assess financial regulatory policy, including the effects of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010. The Financial Regulatory Reform Initiative will be independent, objective and fact-based. It will review the Dodd-Frank Act and, as appropriate, propose credible and politically achievable refinements to the Act that ensure that financial firms operate in a clear and logical regulatory framework that fairly addresses consumer and taxpayer protection, and that promotes open and competitive financial markets. The overarching objective is to promote policies that balance financial stability, economic growth, and consumer protection. Additionally, the project is focused on how the financial system can better serve Main street and is looking at the financial system holistically by focusing not just on regulation and public policy, but also on innovation, technology, and the changing financing needs of the economy.
This internship will include a variety of substantive tasks such as research, assisting staff and task force members in preparing materials for private and public discourse, and assisting staff in preparing responses to Hill and media requests. Other facets of the internship include: monitoring major congressional activity, analyzing regulatory developments, event planning and support, and active engagement on communications issues. The intern will be asked to handle multiple assignments and switch among them depending on the FRRI’s needs.
