Center on Opportunity and Social Mobility

AEI’s Center on Opportunity and Social Mobility (COSM) conducts rigorous research and develops evidence-based policies aimed at expanding opportunity in America by reducing entrenched poverty, increasing upward mobility, and rebuilding social capital. COSM informs and develops an agenda that tackles opportunity gaps facing disadvantaged children and families, increases upward mobility, and renews associational life. In doing so, COSM is attentive to trade-offs, unintended consequences, the strengths of markets, and the importance of work and family. COSM champions personal responsibility and agency while acknowledging external barriers to achievement.
