Program on Identities and Institutions

Director: Rafaela Dancygier, Associate Professor of Politics and International Affairs, Woodrow Wilson School.

The Bobst Center for Peace and Justice Program on Identities and Institutions hosts several conferences and workshops a year that bring together national and international scholars to present and discuss cutting edge social science research. Some recent topics have included comparative immigration integration policy outcomes, the political and economic consequences of refugee settlement, perceptions of immigrant communities, and the politics of ethnic and racial segregation. In May 2017, the Program will tackle research on the nature, causes, and consequences of electoral realignments and the rise of populism in today’s advanced democracies. In covering these and similar subjects, “Identities and Institutions” connects scholars who work on regions across the globe.

Participation in the Bobst Center for Peace and Justice Program on Identities and Institutions is by invitation only.
