Partnering with those working on the frontlines of immigration policy is core to our work. We aim to instill a culture of hypothesis-testing and experimentation in the policy community while increasing the public impact of social science, reimagining its traditional research model to be more collaborative and responsive to real-world problems.
“Robin Hood is proud to partner with the world-class researchers at the Stanford Immigration Policy Lab. This research will help foundations, community- based organizations, and policymakers alike rethink how we invest in our communities for maximum impact.”
Veyom Bahl Managing Director, Robin Hood
