Research Areas

The Policy Research Center supports the work of NCAI by forecasting policy development opportunities and equipping policymakers with timely, credible information. The Center organizes its work by the five topical areas on which NCAI’s committee structure is based. To view our projects by research area, click on any of the committees below.

Policy Research Center staff and partner organizations work closely with the NCAI committees through discussions at Committee meetings and consultation with committee co-chairs on specific projects that align with their committees. Committee co-chairs and members are one of the primary audiences for the Center to: present new project ideas for feedback, report on the status of on-going projects, present preliminary findings for discussion, and make final products available.

The committees are broad in nature and address a range of specific issues.

At times, topics may fall within the purview of multiple committees, and information about a project may be shared with more than one committee.
