Gerrymandering and the future of American Democracy

In the Gill case this year, the Supreme Court will determine the constitutional future of partisan gerrymandering. Scholars and advocates whose arguments are at the heart of the case, including Erin Murphy and Nicholas Stephanopoulos, explore whether and how the Constitution might be interpreted to limit partisan gerrymandering and why it matters for American democracy.

Then, Caroline Fredrickson, president of the American Constitution Society, Nolan McCarty, professor of politics and public affairs at Princeton University, and David Wasserman, house editor for The Cook Political Report, in a second panel explore practical effects of gerrymandering, including its impact on polarization and competitive elections.
