Welcome

The Harkin Institute for Public Policy and Citizen Engagement is dedicated to advancing dialogue about the issues that define our public life. Founded on the premise that good public policy is best achieved when policymakers have access to high quality information, political processes are open and well-understood, and citizens are informed and active participants, the Harkin Institute seeks to create opportunities for thoughtful policy discourse in a nonpartisan environment.
