Since its inception in 2005, the institute has emerged as a leading voice for public policy in New Jersey. More than 200 papers have been posted on our website, along with special features such as a Property Tax Forum, an online Virtual Debate between New Jersey’s candidates for U.S. Senate, and the contents of our 295-page hardcover book The State of the Garden State.

The institute is dedicated to fostering solutions to our state’s challenges and problems. Our mission is to serve as a leading forum for academic research, creative ideas and constructive debate on statewide issues. We are committed to improving the overall understanding of the issues that impact our daily lives by encouraging dialogue from diverse perspectives, including scholars of public policy, government officials and other citizens of our state.

The Hall Institute takes a pragmatic approach to public policy that bridges the gap between scholarship and practical application. We conduct and support scholarly research; present forums, symposiums and conferences; publish white papers and op-ed articles; collaborate with other institutions and foundations, and operate an interactive website that will set us apart from other public policy groups.

Our goal is to present different viewpoints and offer thoughtful analyses of the issues. We believe the solutions to the problems confronting our state can best be solved through collective wisdom – from the halls of academia, from corporate executives and small business owners, and from the many people who call New Jersey home. Through this collective wisdom, we can generate ideas and solutions that can be put into practice by members of both sides of the aisle in Trenton.
