Distribution Conference

February 9th 2018

On February 9th, 2018, the Anxieties of Democracy program’s working group on distribution convened at Yale University. The conference brought our working group members together to explore how changes in the structure of the global economy affect the viability of long settled features of distribution.

The conference was organized by the working group’s co-chairs: Frances Rosenbluth, Damon Wells Professor of Political Science at Yale University, and Margaret Weir, Wilson Professor of International and Public Affairs and Political Science at Brown University. The conference was generously supported by Yale’s MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies, and Yale’s Institution for Social and Policy Studies.
