Garry Young's policy research focuses mainly on urban issues such as the factors that affect urban economic performance, the role that bicycle infrastructure plays in regional transportation systems, and the contentious relationship between national capitals and their national governments.

His political science research emphasises legislative institutions, especially the interplay between institutional dynamics and the representation of constituents.

His work appears in a number of top academic journals including the American Journal of Political Science, the British Journal of Political Science, the Journal of Health Politics, Policy, and Law, the Journal of Politics, Political Research Quarterly, and Legislative Studies Quarterly.  His work has been funded by a variety of sources including the National Science Foundation, the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
