Program on Inequality
Director: Tali Mendelberg, John Work Garrett Professor of Politics, Princeton University.
The Bobst Center for Peace and Justice Program on Inequality, in conjunction with the Center for the Study of Democratic Politics and the Department of Politics, hosts an annual interdisciplinary conference, during the Fall semester, on inequality and identity. The conference brings together scholars from across the nation to compare and contrast dimensions of inequality such as race, class, religion, language, or gender.
This conference is in collaboration with Identity Politics Research Group (IPRG) and co-sponsored by Princeton’s Center for the Study of Democratic Politics (CSDP), Bobst Center for Peace and Justice, and Princeton Research in Experimental Social Sciences (PRESS).

The Bobst Center for Peace and Justice Program on Identities and Institutions hosts several conferences and workshops a year that bring together national and international scholars to present and discuss cutting edge social science research.

The Mamdouha S. Bobst Center
for Peace and Justice
Director: Amaney Jamal, Edwards S. Sanford Professor of Politics at Princeton University.
The Bobst Center’s mission is “to advance the cause of peace, mutual understanding and respect for all ethnic traditions and religious faiths, and justice, both within countries and across national borders.” The activities of the Bobst Center therefore focus on the study of peace and justice. The Center sponsors, on its own and jointly with other departments and programs, panel discussions, conferences, seminars and workshops directed toward issues in areas such as sources of conflict and reconciliation, implications of cultural and religious conflicts, nationalism, regime stability and change, pathways for political self-expression, and more.
The Center also serves as a gathering place for scholars and policymakers to exchange ideas and interact with one another in ways relating to policy formation, and to foster mutual respect and cooperation. A special feature of the Bobst Center for Peace and Justice is its collaboration with the American University of Beirut, Lebanon, which provides fertile ground for faculty and graduate exchanges and research on the roles of social justice and political life in the Arab World.
