Publication date 
January 16, 2018

The Yale Policy Lab is hosting a series of workshops given by visiting professor and former Senator of Wisconsin, Russ Feingold. The spring workshop will examine the challenge of reforming electoral institutions in the United States and will focus on repairing the damage done to several key democratic institutions over the past decade. These include the right to vote, the regulation of campaign financing, and the presidential election process. 

The workshop will meet six times during the semester for up to an hour and a half.  The first workshop will be 4:30-6:00 pm on Wednesday, January 31 with subsequent sessions tentatively scheduled every two weeks. Students will be expected to volunteer to help select readings and lead the discussion on at least one topic.  Registration is required.  See here for more info.
