In conclusion

In conclusion

  • All briefs are focused, professional (not academic), evidence-based, succinct, understandable, accessible, practical, feasible, and action-oriented.

  • Use: From exploration (briefs that present a targeted discussion of policy alternatives without promoting a particular one) to advocacy (briefs that argue directly for the adoption of a particular alternative)
