Urban Policy Series

on the ground

Urban Policy Series

The Urban Policy Series aims to catalyze fresh thinking and generate new knowledge. The health — and future — of our cities require it.  

Cities matter to the Manhattan Institute.

We have long been committed to staying at the forefront of urban-policy innovation. Since 2014, the Manhattan Institute’s “Urban Policy Series” has brought together experts from around the country to shape the future of urban America. From housing to transportation and regulation to urban planning, we have developed nationally-relevant policy solutions grounded in unique local experiences. 

The Urban Policy Series brings practical ideas to the table for public, private, and nonprofit leaders to shape and share. More than two dozen salon dinners and hundreds of expert voices later, the Series’ signature books have gathered together the best ideas in urban policy. The partnership between our scholars and other leading academics and practitioners have allowed us to commission these volumes, which speak directly to some of the biggest challenges that U.S. cities now face.

The Urban Policy Series aims to catalyze fresh thinking and generate new knowledge. The health — and future — of our cities require it.
