Hands-on research is one of the core operations of Strata. Our research team identifies and analyzes complex issues dealing with the environment, energy, and public lands. Believing that better outcomes result when people are given more freedom, we approach our research from a liberty-minded perspective. Our policy analysts work to ensure that Strata’s research reaches and impacts both policymakers and the general public. Strata also employs student researchers who work on real research projects through an apprenticeship that teaches them writing, analytical, and professional skills that will benefit them throughout their careers. Through our research, Strata is working to change the world for the better.
