How We Work
Our goal is to paint a complete picture of the effect of the PFD on Alaskans, and the effects of other cash transfer programs on their recipients. Because these effects are often complex and far-reaching, we take a multi-disciplinary, multi-method approach in our research, drawing from the fields of sociology, economics, medicine, and public policy. Scholars and stakeholders in Alaska and across the country contribute to and inform our research.
Our faculty, researchers, and affiliates share research and insights through working papers, journal articles, and project presentations at conferences throughout the United States.
Partnerships and Outreach
Our team visits Alaska multiple times throughout the year to meet with researchers, partners, stakeholders, experts, and advocates across various policy areas to foster engaging and meaningful connections and dig deeper into the work. We work with researchers throughout the country, including Alaska, Washington, California, Missouri, North Carolina, and here in New York. We also host monthly lab meetings for in-progres research focused on cash transfers.

Through collaborative book studies and conversations, CTL members and affiliates examine implicit assumptions in our research, explore approaches, and challenge beliefs and biases to progress toward anti-colonial and anti-racist frameworks.
