The Manhattan Institute has been an important force in shaping American political culture. By supporting and publicizing research on our era's most challenging public policy issues: taxes, welfare, crime, the legal system, urban life, race, education, and many other topics, we have won new respect for market-oriented policies and helped make reform a reality.

The Manhattan Institute regularly hosts forums in New York City and Washington, DC for policy makers, business people, researchers and journalists. The following is a listing of recent Manhattan Institute conferences and luncheons. Select events are transcribed or video taped and those are available to the general public here on the website.

Individuals who support the Institute are invited to attend MI events. Manhattan Institute events are invite-only. For more information on how to attend an MI event, please click here or contact the Development Office directly at 212-599-7000.
