Issue Briefings

Issue Briefings summarize, in plain language, research findings from the Institute for Work & Health, and elsewhere, on topics that are of particular interest to policy-makers. Where appropriate, they also explore the policy implications of this research. Issue Briefings are designed to give readers a quick overview of key findings on a topic, and to summarize a continuing conversation on the issues. While they do not attempt to be systematic or comprehensive in their review of the relevant literature, they do pay attention to the quality of the research. They also consider existing reviews of the literature when available.
