The mission of Stanford PACS is to develop and share knowledge to improve philanthropy, strengthen civil society, and effect social change. One of the principal ways PACS does that is by publishing the Stanford Social Innovation Review.
SSIR is a shared intellectual space where scholars and practitioners publish inter-disciplinary and cross sector research and ideas to advance social change. SSIR creates thought-leading content on a wide range of topics ranging from human rights and health, to impact investing and nonprofit business models. The flagship quarterly magazine and website is complemented by podcasts, webinars, conferences, e-newsletters, and social media. Every year, more than 2 million people around the world read SSIR articles, listen to SSIR podcasts and webinars, or attend SSIR events.
