AAPSS President Douglas S. Massey, Henry G. Bryant Professor of Sociology and Public Affairs at Princeton University, described the scholars as having ā€œused the power of their intellects and their cutting-edge research to address questions of great importance: Does democracy work as advertised? Are we using the right measures to know how many Americans are living in poverty? Do prisoners understand their right to voice grievances? How has welfare reform affected children and youth? How do the mindsets of children affect their ability to deal with setbacks and failure? Are there gender gaps in pay arising from the sex segregation of occupations? And how does the power of social networks affect individualsā€™ abilities to manage their worlds and succeed economically?ā€

Each new Fellow was introduced by a distinguished member of the Academy and then proceeded to speak about how his or her research has influenced public policy in ways that were welcomed.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]AAPSS Inducts 2010 Fellows of the Academy
