To do good in the world, we have to understand the complexities of social problems.
Ballard Brief was founded on the belief that good research is an essential, yet often overlooked, part of the process of designing effective solutions to social issues.
Many people care deeply about doing good in the world, but do not have the time or resources to understand the complexities of social problems. We seek to curate useful academic research, professional experience, and other key perspectives on specific social issues for every-day changemakers. Additionally, we provide readers with information about important work that is being done to solve those social issues.
