At the nonprofit Urban Institute, we believe in the power of evidence to improve lives and strengthen communities. Public policies work best when they are rooted in facts, and our research sparks solutions in programs and practice. Our analyses and recommendations help expand opportunities for all people, reduce hardship among the most vulnerable, and strengthen the fiscal health and effectiveness of government.
As an intern at the Urban Institute, you’ll work alongside experts across the organization and beyond in the nation’s epicenter of public policy - Washington, DC. Your work will have an impact on real-life, real-time policy issues and discussions.
The Justice Policy Center conducts research and evaluations to improve justice policy and practice at the national, state, and local levels. We conduct rigorous evaluations and in-depth data analyses—and we give context to the data through interviews with individuals involved in the justice system at all levels. We also produce reports and provide technical assistance that translate complex research into actionable strategies to enhance the safety and well-being of individuals and communities. The Justice Policy Center is seeking a research intern who can work collaboratively on projects aimed to enhance and measure criminal justice response in the United States.
