The Center for New York City Affairs at The New School and the Milano School for International Affairs, Management and Urban Policy present the annual Nathan Levin Lecture on Public Policy.
How do cities fit into the current debate in Washington? Are the Obama policies on education, urban development, and social welfare leveraging meaningful improvements for New York and other cities? How will the administration's policies address the social justice issues that were central to the president's reelection campaign--particularly in terms of making opportunities available to economically and socially disadvantaged Americans?
