In 2008 we founded the Institute for Policy Integrity at New York University School of Law with four overarching goals: to publish scholarship on critical policy issues; to improve government decisionmaking through advocacy; to build the capacity of other organizations to make economic arguments in policy proceedings; and to train and educate future scholars and policy practitioners. Our first decade of work has led to notable successes in each of these areas. Policy Integrity staff members have published an array of influential articles, books, and reports. Our advocacy efforts, which often build on this scholarship, have influenced policy at the federal, state, and local levels. Our partnerships and capacity building have helped numerous groups, from the Sierra Club to Planned Parenthood, to incorporate economic analysis into their advocacy. And our fellowship program and Regulatory Policy clinic have honed the skills of talented lawyers and economists who have gone on to prominent positions in government, academia, and policy advocacy.
