Task Force, Study, and Conference Reports

 

The Chicago Council brings together diverse experts and stakeholders for wide-ranging discussions on global topics of importance to the Midwest and the nation. Resulting reports and recommendations contribute insights and perspectives from Chicago and the Midwest to the formation of opinion and policies. In choosing topics, the Council is guided by extensive consultations and elaborate planning efforts. When assembling the groups, the Council ensures they include diverse backgrounds and perspectives. In the end, the findings and recommendations are those of the groups alone – usually in hard-won consensus – not those of The Chicago Council.
