CPPR Events


Each semester the Center for Public Policy Research sponsors a series of seminars organized by the Tulane Department of Economics and the Department of Political Science that provides an opportunity for faculty, researchers, and practitioners to present their latest research and pressing issues related to topics in political economy.



The Center for Public Policy Research hosts an annual two-day symposium in the spring on public policy issues related to political economy, including corruption, healthcare labor shortages, and barriers to affordable housing. CPPR also sponsors the Political Economy and Access To Justice Judicial Education Seminar (PEAJJES) that provides Louisiana judges a venue to explore the intersection of policy with political economy and access to justice.


Working Groups

The Murphy Institute Working Groups on Health Policy and on Public Policy bring together faculty from numerous disciplines across Tulane’s campuses to establish a network of professionals and produce interdisciplinary research that addresses critical policy issues. These working groups provide scholars with the opportunity to present new work to an incisive yet friendly audience.
