Introduction to American Politics: Justice, Equity, and Policy
July 5-16, 2020 (Arrive to GW: July 5, 2020)
Explore aspirations of justice and dilemmas of equality in the United States through law and political science. Students will begin first by examining the structures of the U.S. government and the rights and obligations imposed upon it by the U.S. Constitution. With this as a foundation, students will then explore four dimensions of inequality: race, gender, sexual orientation and gender identity, and immigration, with a fifth dimension, economic inequality, serving as a unifying thread for our discussions.
