Our Mission

The Chicago Policy Review strives to be an access point to the most pressing public policy debates happening in the world today. We bridge the gap between current academic research and the practical solutions policymakers need. Entirely student-run by graduate students at Chicago Harris, the Chicago Policy Review breaks down complex, empirical policy studies into succinct and rigorous analyses that are accessible to everyone, and interviews practitioners on their insights. In doing so, it is our mission to bring valuable perspectives across an array of policy topics to our readers.

Founded in 1996, our Chicago-based team is comprised of approximately 80 writers, editors, and data visualization specialists. The Chicago Policy Review is published exclusively online featuring pieces in English as well as Spanish.
