Welcome!

The purpose of the Urban and Local Politics Organized Section of the American Political Science Association is to promote interest in teaching and research in urban politics and policy. The section seeks to encourage communication among individuals interested in Urban Politics within the Association and within related disciplines.

Organized sections provide opportunities for APSA members who share a common interest in a particular subfield to organize meetings and coordinate communications under Association auspices.

We are pleased to announce and congratulate the winners of the 2019 section awards and thank the committee members for their hard work. Visit the Awards pages to meet our winners!
