Featured Events

I-CSI hosts and co-hosts several events a year in our ongoing effort to bring together academic experts, journalists, organizers, and civic leaders to weigh in on the core questions.

“Police Actions and Citizen Mobilization in Democratic Societies”

April 21-22, 2016

This conference will bring together scholars of the U.S. and other regions of the world to examine the role of police as political and social actors; how police actions are used by governments against individual citizens, organized groups, and movements; and how civil society responds.

“Inequality, Politics, and Prosperity: Research & Remedies”

April 27, 2015

This conference is designed to make a decisive intervention into current discussions of inequality and American politics, setting the agenda both for expanded and broadened research in this area and for improved efforts to translate this research into actionable recommendations.

Co-sponsored in collaboration with the Washington Center for Equitable Growth.
