Structural Barriers and the Pursuit of Equity - LAWN705

3 Credits

Communities around the United States and around the world are rigorously evaluating the problem of structural discrimination, especially as it relates to the legal, socio-political, and economic impacts of inequality on individual lives. The attention that these issues are receiving from ordinary citizens provides an improved opportunity for developing solutions to the problems that have been plaguing societies for generations. The instructors in this survey course will provide a high-level overview of the problem of structural discrimination as it manifests in a variety of issues across multiple disciplines. Throughout the course, students will develop the analytical tools they need to evaluate some of the structures that produce discrimination so they can understand the impact of these barriers on policy and law.
