Global Outlook—Quarterly International Urban Publication Launched by Wilson Center and HUD
The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) have joined together to create a new quarterly international urban publication, Global Outlook.
The first issue was published and released on Friday, January 19th, at a "Launch Party" held at the Wilson Center.
Global Outlook reviews and analyzes the most recent and innovative urban ideas and activities—including research, public policy, and best practices—from communities, cities, regions, and nations on every continent around the world.
The Wilson Center received a $100,000 grant from HUD to produce the publication during Fiscal Year 2001. Wilson Center Public Policy Scholar Marc A. Weiss serves as editor and project manager, together with Alven H. Lam from HUD's Office of International Affairs.
Many of the Wilson Center's senior staff, fellows, and public policy scholars have been working closely with HUD staff to develop this new publication.
The inaugural issue includes discussion about recent Wilson Center urban conferences, introductory essays by HUD Secretary Andrew Cuomo and Wilson Center Director Lee H. Hamilton, and articles by Sir Peter Hall, Congressman Chaka Fattah, and senior officials from the United Nations and the World Bank.
