CURA Policy Briefs
The CURA Policy Brief is published regularly to report the findings, and policy and practice implications, of CURA-supported projects. Each brief begins with an assessment of a current issue, reports the findings from the research project, and concludes with recommendations for policy or practice. Although the briefs are written with policy makers and practitioners in mind, journalists, educators, and students may also find the briefs helpful to become informed about the latest research at CURA on a range of topics.
Check back regularly for new CURA Policy Briefs, or request an e-mail notification when a new policy brief is available.
The content of the CURA Policy Brief and the research summarized therein are the responsibility of the author(s) and are not necessarily endorsed by CURA or the University of Minnesota.
