This colloquy will critically assess the new edited book by James DeFilippis on the urban policy of the Obama Administration. As described by its publisher, University of Minnesota Press, “'Urban Policy in the Time of Obama' explores a broad range of policy arenas that shape, both directly and indirectly, metropolitan areas and urbanization processes. It finds that most of the dominant policies and policy regimes of recent years have fallen short of easing the ills of America’s cities, and calls for a more equitable and just urban policy regime.” Panelists will offer evaluative comments on the book itself, while weaving in their own thoughts and reflections on the Obama Administration’s impact on American cities.
