Race, Class, and What Else? Policies and Politics in American Cities

WZB Talk by Jennifer L. Hochschild - Online Event

When and why do race/class interactions shape public policy disputes in American cities?  It depends on the policy – very much for policing and housing development, surprisingly little for public schools and public sector pensions. But race reappears, sometimes in surprising ways.

Jennifer L. Hochschild is the Henry LaBarre Jayne Professor of Government, Professor of African and African American Studies, and Professor of Public Policy at Harvard University and Visiting Researcher of the WZB Research Unit Transformation of Democracies.
