The American Academy of Political and Social Science (AAPSS) announced its election of political scientist MARGARET LEVI, the Sara Miller McCune Director of the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (CASBS) at Stanford, as its 2017 Robert A. Dahl Fellow. The award recognizes the contributions Levi has made to social science and her efforts to bring the results of her research to public attention. The AAPSS announcement notes that Levi has made “foundational contributions in comparative politics, the ways in which the quality of government can be improved and political economies that can sustain workers.”

AAPSS was founded in 1889 to advance research on contemporary political, economic, social and policy issues. Its fellows program was begun in 2000, with each fellowship named for distinguished past AAPSS members. The program “recognizes distinguished contributions to scholarship and to public policy, emphasizing the mission of the Academy – social science in the public interest.” Levi is one of only 111 fellows elected since 2000.

Levi and the other elected fellows will be inducted at a ceremony to be held in Washington, D.C., on May 18, 2017.
