Four researchers from the University of Pennsylvania have been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, one of the nation's most prestigious honorary societies and a leading center for independent policy research.
The new honorees are:

Devesh Kapur of the School of Arts and Sciences says, “For Modi the overseas Gujaratis who are clearly wealthy are a way to acquire a degree of legitimacy.”
