Our Work

The Ƶ develops and promotes useful knowledge through projects and publications.

As an independent research center, the Ƶ is committed to multidisciplinary, nonpartisan research that engages experts in various fields and professions to provide pragmatic solutions for complex challenges. While our work is guided by program advisory committees, the Ƶ often undertakes projects that do not fit neatly into a single category and occasionally convenes exploratory meetings. No matter the topic, the Ƶ emphasizes the need for interdisciplinary study that draws on expertise from many fields of research and professional practice.

Active outreach efforts ensure that Ƶ findings and proposals reach policy-makers and leaders in government, higher education, business, and philanthropy through publications and events. Furthermore, Ƶ studies take a global perspective while retaining the deep interest in the strength of American policies and institutions that has guided the organization’s work for over two centuries.
