Since World War II, there have been many attempts to reform domestic policy in the United States, yet only some of these have led to significant policy change. What are the political drivers of significant policy reform in the contemporary American history? What factors contribute to the failure or success of major policy reform?

Organized by GAGE Faculty Associates Jeffery A. Jenkins and Sidney M. Milkis, the 2011 William and Carol Stevenson Conference will assemble some of the leading academicians in political science and public policy studies to address the politics surrounding policy change in the areas of health care, civil rights, education, trade policy, immigration, labor policy, homeland security & terrorism, intelligence, and law & order.
