[B]Mission Statement[/B]
The ECA Institute (ECAi) is the focal point for public policy research and analysis (federal, state, and international), as well as scholarships and educational programs, at the Entertainment Consumers Association (ECA). Its mission is to inform the development of ECA's public policy positions and to contribute to and influence public debate on issues of importance to video game players (gamers).

[B]Research & Polling[/B]
ECAi conducts objective, relevant, and timely research on issues that reflect ECA's strategic priorities: First Amendment rights, violence in games, parental empowerment and education, Network Neutrality, Universal Broadband, DMCA and Fair Use and consumer protection. The Institute also conducts work on emerging public policy issues in both the domestic and international arenas.
[/B] [B]Publications[/B]
To meet the diverse needs of its several audiences, the Institute uses a variety of report formats. Publications are available in hard copy and on the Internet. All ECAi research reports are peer reviewed by internal and external subject experts. Furthermore, the Institute houses our online publications, newsletters and websites (GameCulture, GamePolitics, ECA Today, etc.) in an effort to educate our members and the general public.
[/B] [B]Technical Assistance & Expert Consultation[/B]
ECAi provides ad hoc, rapid-response analysis, expert consultation, and technical assistance and support to inform and help guide ECA's advocacy efforts. The work of the Institute is also intended to enhance decision makers' and opinion leaders' understanding of gamers' needs and concerns.
[/B] [B]Scholarships & Other Educational Programs[/B]
The Institute develops and fosters game education programs and assists students with scholarships and financial aid.
[/B] [B]Public Representation[/B]
Our staff represents ECA in public and professional forums through: service on task forces, work groups, commissions, and boards; presentations and speeches; production of related events and participation in external policy-related meetings. In so doing, the Institute contributes to and helps shape public discussion about ECA's priority issues and the needs and concerns of its diverse membership.
