Democracy & Justice Research Flagship

The Democracy and Justice Research Flagship brings together a diverse group of scholars with backgrounds in political science, sociology, history, cultural studies and anthropology. Our work is driven by intellectual curiosity and by the desire to influence public policy. While much of our research is theoretical, other projects are done in conjunction with industry partners in pursuit of more tangible outcomes.
