Reports & Research

Since the creation of the Institute in 2006, the reports and research from faculty, students, and practitioners has spanned many categories, countries, and challenges. We believe all our work, past and present, has played an important role in shaping the direction of the Institute, and the community around us. In our archives, you can read about the students who worked the Institute director Jim Gomes to forecast votes in swing dates, watch a video from a faculty member about the hidden costs of our clothes, explore reports of past summer internship projects, and much more.
