The Dukakis Center conducts interdisciplinary research, in collaboration with civic leaders and scholars both within and beyond Northeastern University, to identify and implement real solutions to the critical challenges facing urban areas throughout Greater Boston, the Commonwealth, and the nation.

It was founded in 1999 as the Center for Urban and Regional Policy or CURP. In November 2008 the Center was renamed in honor of Kitty and Michael Dukakis.

Publications produced by the Center under its previous name can be found here.
