Miranda at 40 Years

The Supreme Court's decision in Miranda v. Arizona has generated tremendous controversy—both high praise and intense critique—since it was handed down in 1966. Forty years later, what does this famous decision mean? Does it continue to afford criminal suspects meaningful protection of their constitutional rights?

Listening to the World: New Ideas for Resolving Identity-Based Conflict

In the United States, we turn to courts, administrative agencies, and the political process to resolve social problems. However, significant conflicts related to race, ethnicity, religion, and class often remain unaddressed. This symposium will bring together interdisciplinary scholars from around the world to generate new ideas for building United States institutions that are responsive to such conflict. The symposium will use social problems implicated by police-community relations as a case example to refine and expand our understanding of the possibilities of dispute system design.
