The City-University Connection

We kick off WGBH's "Where We Live" series with the city-university connection. Boston is home to some of the world's best research institutions and leading experts on urban issues such as poverty and crime. Though Boston is the perfect place to study societal issues, the city's scholars usually go outside greater Boston—opting to study cities like Lagos or Los Angeles.  A new initiative out of Harvard University's Radcliffe Institute is aiming to change this. The goal is to have our universities collaborate with city officials to examine how the city works, how it fails, and the policy changes that can make this a better place to live.

GUESTS:
Boston Police Superintendent-in-Chief Daniel Linskey 
Robert Sampson, the Henry Ford II Professor of the Social Sciences and the Director of the Social Sciences Program at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. 
Christopher Winship, the Diker-Tishman Professor of Sociology at Harvard. He’s also a faculty member Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.
