The Future of Policy series features articles focused on emergent policy challenges. The series was developed alongside the Future Society at Harvard Kennedy School, a student organization dedicated to stimulating and organizing meaningful conversations about the policy challenges and questions around the corner and in the decades to come.
The pieces address challenges across algorithms, the future of work, transparency, and more. They Also seek to iterate and recommend solutions that interrogate the challenges at and beyond the policymaking frontier.
