Program on Identities and Institutions

The Program on Identities and Institutions is led by Director and Associate Professor of Politics and Woodrow Wilson School, Rafaela Dancygier. This program focuses on the domestic consequences of globalization, immigration and ethnic diversity. The program hosts annual conferences and workshops that bring together national and international scholars to present and discuss cutting edge social science research. Some recent topics have included comparative immigrant integration policies and their outcomes; the politics of gentrification and segregation in global cities; and electoral realignments and coalitional change in democracies.

Most recently, the program held its annual spring workshop entitled "New Divisions and Political Conflict in Democracies" which brought together internationally renowned scholars discussing issues about the political implications of divisions emerging from recent economic, demographic and technological change.

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