"Building Civil Society from the Ground Up: Collective Action among the Forcibly Displaced"- Professor Mahoney's research proposes a theoretical structure to explain when we should be more likely to see political and non-political collective action in displacement camps and presents evidence from a comparative study of collective action among the forcibly displaced in Croatia, Thailand, Colombia, Uganda and Sri Lanka to test that theory. The findings of this study will illuminate where participatory policies are working, where they are not and why. According to Professor Mahoney, understanding what contextual factors undermine participatory approaches will help inform future NGO policy formation.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
