May 28, 2024

Save the date! Another robust season of conversations awaits in the 2024–25 (In)Justice Series presented by the Institute for Advanced Study. We are pleased to share that next year’s events will partner with the Andrew W. Mellon-funded Sawyer Seminar on “Just Policing.” In conversation with community activists and leading scholars, we will interrogate policing across the globe, its histories and futures.

As we explore efforts to reform, transform, or abolish policing, our invited guests will also examine the many ways policing intersects with broader societal issues in the United States and other parts of the world. 

Mark your calendars now, and sign up for our newsletter to be sure you don’t miss our announcement in August detailing the full season!
