What is JDP?
This collaborative effort of the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs and the Departments of Politics, Psychology, Population Studies, and Sociology combines work in a basic social science with a multidisciplinary perspective on the problems of economic insecurity and inequality.
Students in SPI 590S submit a paper that is reviewed by a prominent researcher in their field. It is hoped that this will help the student to have a paper ready for publication.
Many of these papers have been published as journal articles. One paper was published as a book chapter, and there is even a book that was based on the paper written for this class.
