Five Borough Institute is a non-partisan research and educational organization
whose mission is to encourage the development and implementation of sound
and progressive public policies. It will focus on urban economic and political
issues, especially those that affect New York City and it surrounding region,
including global economic forces that threaten the jobs and livelihood
of working people.
The Institute seeks to reinvigorate
a public policy discourse which has become dominated by narrow ideological
perspectives. We will attempt to provide more balanced policy assessments
which include especially the interests and concerns of working people.
To strengthen the growing collaboration between working people and academia,
the leadership of the Institute will include trade unionists and union
staff as well as faculty members from the social sciences, labor studies,
and other disciplines. [More]
