Overview:

The workshop will engage scholars and government officials in empirical and theoretical questions about the role of Senate-confirmed appointees in American government. The workshop aims to build a community of scholars working on appointees, and it aims to connect scholars and government officials concerned about reforms to the appointment process. We hope this will be the first in a series of events.
