White Papers in the Martin Institute | International Studies

White papers in the Martin Institute and Program in International Studies are documents demonstrating the breadth of one’s analysis of an issue

They are designed to show people how a proposed solution to a problem stacks up against other approaches.

They differ from position papers in that their main purpose is to justify a position rather than simply state it, and differ from a policy paper in terms of breadth

A commonality with the other types of papers is an emphasis on succinctness.
