Manpower Demonstration Research Corporation

Judith Gueron, Outgoing President of the Manpower Demonstration Research Corporation, will author a book profiling the development of randomized trials as a tool in the assessment of social programs and an important factor in policy making, focusing specifically on evaluations of welfare reform programs. She will highlight the role played by Congress, the individual states, private philanthropy, and the MDRC in turning these demonstration projects from a stigmatized research design to a fundamental component in the construction of social policy.
