Inequality Roundtable

The United States is more unequal today than at any other time in its history. The economic, social and political power of most Americans continues to erode, yet policymakers and politicians on both sides of the aisle haven’t addressed the issue.

USC Price is committed to taking a leadership role to combat the corrosive public policy impact of structural inequality through deep thinking, groundbreaking research and innovative private sector partnerships.

Slavery & Its Legacies Symposium

Slavery, as an institution, traces its origins back to Mesopotamia in 3500 B.C. Slavery was abolished by most nations sometime in the 19th century. Slavery’s effects, however, persisted in many nations for decades — and still persist in various forms today. The Slavery and Its Legacies Symposium examines this historical persistence of institutionalized slavery, both in the United States and in other nations.
