New book on urban and regional policy by BRR members

2.28.2012 | Urban planners and policymakers will want to check out the new book, Urban and Regional Policy and Its Effects, newly released by the Brookings Institution Press.

Volume 4 in the series introduces and examines the concept of regional resilience. The authors–all BRR members– illuminate how the walls that now segment metro regions into political jurisdictions must be bridged in order for regions to cultivate resilience. In addition to a thorough overview of both regionalism and resilience, chapters examine how a regional perspective plays out in the foreclosure crisis, immigration policies, transit-oriented development, economic development, and in extending the social safety net to the suburbs, where poverty is increasing but social services are not.

Volumes 1, 2, and 3 are also available from Brooking Institution Press.
