Project Partners

As an applied research program, the Program on Local and Intergovernmental Studies (POLIS) works closely with government partners on projects that examine public policy issues and support effective decision making. POLIS projects encourage a tighter connection between governments and the academic world, bringing social science tools and perspectives to public sector concerns, and real world grounding to intergovernmental research.
