Political Scientists Should Study Philanthropy

Implications of evolving political philanthropy.

Skocpol’s introduction to Political Science & Politics’ politics symposium dives into the need for more thorough research on the intersection between philanthropy and public policy.

What role do foundations play in the US political system, and what actions have lead to this being the case? Does an increase in the number of foundations truly help reduce economic inequality or does it only serve to exacerbate the problem? Skocpol touches on these issues and more, opening the discussion for further investigation and debate.
