- How Political Institutions Shape Outcomes and How We Might Reform Them
- In the U.S., political institutions reflect choices and compromises about how we balance between majority and minority interests. Kluge Prize winner Danielle Allen moderates an expert panel to look at the way different systems of electoral decision-making in a democracy can, by themselves, lead to very different outcomes, and what can be done to reform them in ways that result in more responsive and deliberative legislative bodies.
