Open Classroom: We are Born Free but are in Chains Everywhere
4:30 – 5:30 p.m.
Pozycki Upper Lobby

Students of PS 401, Political Science Seminar class will present their research at this poster session titled We Are Born Free But Are in Chains Everywhere. Inspired by the French political philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau, the overall theme on which the papers were designed is Social Contract Theory and how it intersects with state responsibilities and individual rights, obligations, justice, and equity.

As our fellow Ukrainians struggle to hold on to their lives and their sovereign state, and as we process the impact of the pandemic, growing inequalities, and the looming climate crisis, what is the role of the state in keeping citizens safe, healthy, and happy? The papers cover topics ranging from growing economic and political inequality, gun violence and politics, gender-based violence in conflict zones and in peacetime, development theories and policies, the impact of climate change and healthcare disparities, US-China relations, and many more topics that have timeless and contemporary relevance.

The papers and this session represent students’ creativity, perseverance, diversity of thought and perspective, quality research, writing, and presentation skills. Above all, it represents the value and joy of learning. Through their work, the students want to understand the sources of inequality and violence, and offer policy solutions that can lead to equity, justice, and peace in society and among nations. Students have worked hard to bring this session built on their passion on the topics surrounding our social contract with governments so that we can aspire toward a better, more equitable, and peaceful society.
