Federalism Event

The conference will bring together scholars from the fields of political science, economics, and law, as well as policy practitioners, to discuss how contemporary politics are shaped by the relationship between the federal and state governments, and how that relationship affects contemporary political conflicts. The primary goal of the conference is twofold. First, we aim to give scholars the opportunity to present current research related to these topics to a diverse audience of academics and policy makers alike, with the hope of encouraging those scholars to address problems perceived to be of greatest importance in contemporary policy debates. Second, we hope to facilitate cross-pollination between the academic and policy spheres more generally.
