Child & Family

We work to better understand the implications and dynamics of child protection, foster care placement and transfer payment policies.  We also study the tensions and assumptions that underpin current social policy design, chart alternatives to existing choices and examine their likely implications, and explore creative strategies to improve implementation outcomes. This work is often undertaken in partnership with governments and nonprofit organizations.
