CTPSR's Professor Harris Beider and Kusminder Chahal with Dr Stacy Anne Harwood from the Department of Urban & Regional Planning at the University of Illinois have published their latest report.
This report presents an analysis of white working-class communities’ perspectives on belonging, change, identity, and immigration. Recent studies about the white working class focus on national politics, religion, and immigration; this study tells a national story from a grassroots perspective with an eye toward the prospects for cross-racial coalition building between working-class white communities and communities of color. The project’s goals were to increase understanding about white working-class communities in America, to disrupt the negative narrative about the white working class by contextualizing its issues and challenges, and to put forward practical ideas for cros-sracial coalition building.

In the next of our Big Question public debate series we examine, ‘What does populism really look like?’ Following recent victories for the ‘Leave’ campaign in the Brexit vote and Donald Trump in the US elections and the seeming rise of the ‘populist’ agenda, we will examine both the causes and potential effects of the rise of populist views and their endorsement through these results.
