Welcome

Race and democracy are deeply intertwined, whether we are discussing the Arab Spring, changing demographics in European nations, the United States presidential contest, or municipal elections in Boston. The Center for the Study of Race and Democracy's mission is to promote engaged research and scholarship that focus on the ways in which issues of race and democracy impact the lives of global citizens. Through interdisciplinary scholarship, technological innovation, and public symposia, the CSRD seeks to develop an interactive model of history that fosters a robust intellectual and civic dialogue on race relations, civil rights, law, international relations, and democracy at Tufts, in Boston, and in the wider global community.
