Set Politics Aside and join the conversation

Politics Aside is an invitation-only, postelection event that engages policymakers, opinion leaders, philanthropists, and RAND's leading thinkers in a nonpartisan examination of pressing policy challenges.

Politics Aside is a very welcome antidote to an excess diet of political punditry and 30-second attack ads.
