The Future of Children is a collaboration of the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University and the Brookings Institution. The mission of The Future of Children is to translate the best social science research into information that is useful to policymakers, practitioners, grant-makers, advocates, the media, and students of public policy. The project publishes two journals and policy briefs each year, and it provides various short summaries of its work. Since The Future of Children aims to reach a wide audience with the best objective research possible, the articles contained in the journals are literature reviews that provide a balanced view of the literature and evidence, review both basic and "policy-relevant" research to highlight what is known as well as what works, and avoid using overly technical language. The project also supports numerous outreach activities, such as practitioner conferences and policy maker forums, and posts webcasts of these on its website. In keeping with its commitment to reach a broad audience, The Future of Children offers all electronic versions of its materials on its website, www.futureofchildren.org, and attendance at its outreach forums free of charge.
