Statement of Purpose
The 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]
