Policy Creation

Championed by our School of Public Policy, this research platform draws together synthesis and analysis of information from many disciplines to advance public discussions of policy and to promote critical evaluation of policy alternatives. This integration is truly crosscutting, involving legal scholars, economists, political scientists, environmental scientists, engineers, health and resource economists, health practitioners, business and financial scholars, and social scientists. It considers an ever-evolving list of pressing demands from society for critical analysis and conclusions on the impacts of alternative policies.

Our research platforms interact closely with our strategic research themes—stimulating new advances and approaches for tackling key problems.
