Bruce Ackerman: Goldstone Forum

The Goldstone Forum presents Bruce Ackerman, Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science, Yale University, speaking on Democratic Elections and Deliberation Day, Thursday, April 1, 4:30 p.m., Logan Hall, Room 17.

Mr. Ackerman has been a leading voice on some of the most important constitutional issues of the last decade including the Gore-Bush election and the Clinton impeachment proceedings. His distinction as a scholar of constitutional law and political science is reflected through such fundamental works as Social Justice in the Liberal State and the multivolume We the People, a history of American constitutional development. In other works, such as The Stakeholder Society, Mr. Ackerman applies his insights to the problem of defining a practical progressive agenda for the twenty-first century.

In his most recent book, Deliberation Day, Mr. Ackerman and co-author James Fishkin advocate the creation of a new national holiday, two weeks before presidential elections, for citizens to discuss the issues and candidates in neighborhoods across the country.

The Goldstone Forum is an annual lecture that was established in 2001 by Steven F. Goldstone, C '67. The program is free and open to the public.
