Engaged Scholars

Where to Read Their Work

Civic & Charitable Organizations

APSA Related Group on Civil Society, Policy, and Power. I convene this group of more than 60 political scientists and other scholars researching and writing on donors and nonprofits. We maintain a Google Group (list-serve) and are developing repositories of syllabi, datasets, teaching materials, working papers, and published articles. We hold panels and a reception/business meeting at the American Political Science Association’s annual meeting. To join, email me.
