​​We investigate who has a voice in decision making, the process by which decisions are made, and who is ultimately accountable for the consequences of those decisions and their implementation. These questions are critical for accurately representing the historical and contemporary world around us, and inform potential interventions to affect positive change in the material conditions of vulnerable populations. We draw on the interdisciplinary strengths of faculty to examine governance issues in law, sociology, political science, religious studies, economics, and anthropology.​
