Politics & Policy

The questions of good policy versus politics-as-usual continue to be a dominant topic in Columbia and Raleigh. The topics of tax reform, voter identification laws and immigration seem to have taken the spotlight, while clear political divisions appear between the region’s rural and urban communities. Or political science experts discuss these policy issues, the changing demographics of the electorate and predictions for the 2014 vote. Dr. Cheryl Richards, CEO and Charlotte Regional Dean of Northeastern University moderates the conversation with Dr. Adolphus Belk, Jr. of Winthrop University, Dr. Michael Bitzer of Catawba College, Dr. Laura Olson of Clemson University and Dr. Susan Roberts of Davidson College.
