Political scientists in public debate

- February 29, 2012

At the Monkey Cage, we tend to talk about specific political science research findings. But it’s at the least plausibly useful to link to political scientists who build out from their research to engage in more general kinds of public debate. To that end, I’ll try to do some occasional posts with links to recent (or at least, recent-ish) interventions by political scientists in public argument.

(1) Jeff Isaac on “changing conceptions of democracy

(2) Kathryn Sikkink, talking about her recent book, The Justice Cascade.

(3) Daron Acemoglu (economist) and James Robinson (political scientist) on “Capture and Anti-Capture in US politics“; (also, see the blog for their forthcoming book, talking about her recent book.

Nominations for other public interventions welcome via email.
