Social Policy

Translating multidisciplinary research to inform policy change and address social inequity

Using basic and applied research, quantitative and qualitative analysis, and other techniques, we seek to learn more about how social policy and systems affect and address social disparities. By evaluating, developing, and implementing programs, we translate research to inform policy change, both domestically and internationally.

We support client programs that focus on issues related to the impact of crime and violence on children, families, and individuals. Our team also researches security and preparedness, delinquency prevention, policing, corrections and sentencing, and other key topics in justice, safety, and resilience.
