Quigley Town Halls

  • The Quigley Town Hall (QTH) was established by the CPP in 2013. The idea was to provide the campus and the community multiple, on-going opportunities to learn about and explore contemporary policy issues, debates, and key events.  The QTH series is run entirely by CPP Fellows; they develop the topics that are to be explored in the series, choreograph the events, and arrange for policy experts to help facilitate the discussions. We try to hold one QTH per month during the academic year.

Some of the most recent Quigley Town Halls have focused on the following topics:

  • The Daily Me: Algorithms and Political Preferences
  • 2016 Presidential and Down-ballot Elections
  • Election Post-Mortem
  • Polling and the 2016 Presidential Election
  • Turkey, Jordan, and the Refugee Crisis
  • U.S. Foreign Policy and NATO
