Metropolitan Policy Center Publications

Part of MPC's mission is to cultivate innovative cross-disciplinary metropolitan and urban research that helps to improve people's lives and public policy. We've accomplished this again and again by producing numerous publications with our findings. In the four years that we've been around, we've published 7 books and 50+ articles, completed 4 projects, and presented in over 115 countries & locations.
