Expanding the Community of Fate


  • Margaret Levi


This research explores the conditions under which government actors and citizens recognize and incorporate the interests of others in their policy decisions and actions. To do so requires a change in beliefs about whose interests are intertwined and what it is possible and appropriate to do as a polity. This in turn demands changes in governance arrangements and, ultimately, norms of behavior.
