The Politics and Policy Series is a thought-provoking, stimulating series of courses and events sponsored by The New School (http://www.newschool.edu/). The series will combine in-class lectures and assignments with the hands-on experience and intellects of both American and Global politics experts in order to dissect the 2016 U.S. Presidential Elections, while also providing an international perspective.

Panel discussion examining voting rights in U.S. elections and the continuing fight to equal access to the ballot. A conversation with The Nation's Ari Berman, author of the new book Give us the Ballot; The New York Times' national correspondent Maggie Haberman; and Fordham University political science professor Christina Greer. The panel will be moderated by Milano professor Jeff Smith.
