Healthy Political Systems: During American Political Science Association Annual Meeting & Exposition

People Interested

All healthy political systems must perform certain basic functions, including selection of individuals to fill offices, articulation of demands by the public, and provision of clues to elected officials on policies the public wishes adopted. More generally, healthy political systems help maintain integration of society by determining norms; adapt and change elements of social, economic, religious systems necessary for achieving collective goals; and protect the integrity of the political system from outside threats. Please join Health Systems Chat in Social VR regulars and NOOBs online, beneath a 3D replica of the US Capitol rotunda, during American Political Science Association Annual Meeting & Exposition!

This informal online meetup is unaffiliated with the 2021 American Political Science Association Annual Meeting & Exposition
