CSD is partnered with the Brookings Institution (BI) on the Initiative on International Volunteering and Service to build knowledge on international service worldwide. BI aims to create avenues for meaningful participation in international volunteering and service, and to ensure long-lasting value for volunteers, as well as for sending and hosting organizations, communities, and countries. As a partner in this initiative, CSD is conducting impact research that builds knowledge on international service worldwide and will contribute to related policy analysis.
Research includes analyzing longitudinal data extracted from the US Bureau of Labor Statistic’s Current Population Survey to assess the extent to which residents in the U.S. volunteer internationally.
