By invitation only.
Cosponsored with the Luce Project on Migration, Participation, and Democratic Governance in the U.S., Europe, and the Muslim World: A PIIRS Research Cluster. Conference organized by Amaney Jamal and Sophie Meunier.

The goal of this workshop is to analyze the factors that determine levels of anti-Americanism, while paying specific attention to the ways in which anti-Americanism shapes domestic political developments across the globe. The workshop will introduce key questions, new analytical insights, and novel hypotheses on anti-Americanism and will generate new thoughts on how social scientists might operationalize its different dimensions.
