All work of the WRR is public and published in one of four series.

  • Reports to the government: extensive reports containing advice on government policy
  • Policy briefs: shorter publications containing reflection on current topics, along with recommendations
  • Investigations: publications in which the WRR points out societal issues
  • Working papers: background studies written to support advisory projects

In addition to these four series, the WRR occasionally issues publications, videos and podcasts on current topics.
