May 24 Excursion

“The K Street Crawl”

The main industry of Washington D.C. is policy-making.  It has a complex, multi-stage production process involving heterogeneous inputs and often erratic timelines.  This production process is not very well-understood beyond the Beltway. The excurion is open to the first 25 people to sign up. There is a fee of $75. You must be registered for the ISA Conference in order to register for and attend the excursion.

The purpose of this excursion is to introduce industry studies scholars to some of the key institutional forms within the Washington policy-making eco-system, so that they gain a better understanding of the roles of these institutions in the production process
and their management and governance practices.
