Welcome to the Cornell Policy Review
We are engaged in the process of understanding and refining the concepts, ideas and goals that affect the public. To this end, I present The Cornell Policy Review, a place for ideas that draw policy perspectives and criticisms from the varied interests among Fellows at the Cornell Institute for Public Affairs, the broader Cornell community and other colleagues similarly engaged in this process.
In this online edition of our inaugural publication of The Review, we are pleased to present a diverse selection of entries that reflect this commitment, featuring several former, current and future CIPA Fellows. As you explore The Review, please feel free to join the debate by leaving questions and comments where appropriate.
