Current Affairs

What should voters be attuned to as they sort through candidates in the upcoming Congressional elections? What are the key issues of concern to the new generation of millennial voters? A panel of scholars explores some of the fundamental questions newly elected representatives will have to address: poverty and inequality, tax policy and the social safety net, and education reform and propose research- and experience-based policy solutions in an effort to overcome the ideological divisions that derail so much political debate.

Produced in conjunction with the Scholars Strategy Network, a national group of scholars seeking to use research to improve policy and enhance democracy.
