Confronting Structural Racism in Research and Policy Analysis

Charting a Course for Policy Research Institutions

Abstract

In November 2018, the Urban Institute hosted a roundtable discussion with 23 organizations representing policy research, academia, and philanthropy to share approaches, insights, and lessons from our respective efforts to confront structural racism in our research and policy analysis. This brief discusses the rationale for these efforts at implementing institutional change; the range of challenges and constraints facing different types of research organizations; and our experience to date with specific tools and strategies. We aim to advance understanding of and attention to structural racism in the work of our own institution and in the larger field of policy research.
