Description

The Russell Sage Foundation (RSF) is dedicated to strengthening the social sciences as a means of achieving more informed and rational social policy. The Foundation's agenda includes research on the causes and consequences of various social problems, as well as basic research aimed at improving the methods, data, and theoretical foundation of social science. The Foundation currently pursues five principal programs: (1) a program of research on the Future of Work concerned principally with the causes and consequences of changes in the quality of low-wage work in the United States and other advanced economies; (2) a program of research on current U.S. Immigration aimed at discovering how well immigrants and their children are adapting socially, politically, and economically to life in the United States, particularly as they move beyond the traditional immigrant gateway cities; (3) a program on Cultural Contact concerned with understanding and improving relations between racial and ethnic groups in schools, workplaces, neighborhoods, and other key institutional settings; (4) a program on Social Inequality, focused on the social effects of rising economic inequality, with particular attention to the ways in which the U.S. political and educational systems have responded to growing economic disparities; and (5) a program of research on Behavioral Economics which incorporates the insights of psychology and other social sciences into the study of economic behavior.
