The Other America and Anti-Poverty Policies

a PSC Research Project [ARCHIVE DISPLAY]

Investigator:   Sheldon H. Danziger

The National Poverty Center (NPC) at the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan proposes to explore current trends and identify directions for future research on eight to ten topics related to the history and future of poverty and anti-poverty policies in the United States. We will engage leading scholars and policy analysts, develop and execute a series of seminars and public events, and produce a set of accompanying analyses and publications that will be widely distributed. This effort will be undertaken within the context of the 50th anniversary of the publication of Michael Harrington?s influential book, The Other America.

Funding Period: 11/01/2011 to 04/30/2013

Country of Focus: USA
