About Us

The Institute for Policy Integrity is a non-partisan advocacy organization and think-tank dedicated to improving the quality of governmental decisionmaking.

Watch a brief introductory video about Policy Integrity.

Established in 2008 and based on the principles outlined in Retaking Rationality: How Cost-Benefit Analysis Can Better Protect the Environment and Our Health, by Richard L. Revesz and Michael A. Livermore, Policy Integrity advocates for sound cost-benefit analysis at the state, national, and global levels. In that book, Revesz and Livermore argue for an unbiased approach to measuring the costs and benefits of environmental, public health, and safety policy.

Sponsored by the New York University School of Law, and housed in the Frank J. Guarini Center for Environmental and Land Use Law, Policy Integrity consists of a board of advisors of leaders in government, business, and policy; members of the Law School’s world-class faculty; and a team of staff and fellows dedicated to the Institute’s mission.

Policy Integrity advocates for reform before courts, legislatures, and executive agencies. By reaching out and building coalitions with non-governmental organizations, Policy Integrity facilitates their effective participation in the regulatory process. Policy Integrity is also dedicated to contributing original scholarly research in the areas of environmental, public health, and safety policy.
