Where to Read Their Work

Civic & Charitable Organizations

The Working Group on Philanthropy, Policy, and Power. I convene this group of more than 50 political scientists researching and writing on donors and nonprofits. We maintain a Google Group (list-serv) and are developing repositories of syllabi, datasets, teaching materials, working papers, and published articles. We first convened at APSA 2016 and intend to meet at each subsequent annual meeting. To join, email me.
