  • This event has passed.

The inaugural Nelson W. Polsby Congressional Conversation is hosted by Norm Ornstein of the American Enterprise Institute and features Representatives Barney Frank and Tom Davis. It is a candid conversation between prominent congressional leaders of opposing political interests on finding ways to build bridges, find solutions, and govern effectively in a highly partisan environment.

The Polsby series aims to honor the late Berkeley congressional scholar Nelson Polsby by enabling substantive discussion between politically opposed leaders. Polsby was noted for his ecumenical approach to divisive political issues and his efforts over many decades to expand our understanding of political institutions and to make them work better.
