Breakout Groups Format & Goals: Rather than formal paper presentations, we’d like these to be “working sessions” that can help develop political economy ideas & connections. Groups will be asked to take notes and report back Friday afternoon.
- “Lightning round” introductions, aim for 3-4 minutes each, adding to your abstract, and any particular feedback you’d like, your initial thoughts on one or more questions below, or another issue for discussion. We’ll circulate longer papers to group members; send electronically by June 7 to Denise.Rowboatfoundation@gmail.com. Feel free to bring hard copies too.
- Questions for Friday plenary report (other thoughts welcome!):
What core principles and assumptions should guide analysis of this topic?
What are some key recommended readings or resources?
How can analysis and policy on this topic respond to a range of inequalities and divisions, such as race, gender, citizenship status, religion, family status?
What specific policy reforms are most promising?
What questions would be most fruitful for further collaborative research & exchange?
