The 2012 Bradley Symposium, hosted by the Hudson Institute's Bradley Center for Philanthropy and Civic Renewal and National Affairs magazine in June in Washington, D.C., examined James Q. Wilson and his legacy.  Wilson was a prominent political scientist and Bradley Prize recipient whose work in American politics, public policy, organization, and culture and character was widely read and acclaimed by public officials and everyday citizens alike.

The Symposium featured a discussion among prominent political figures and scholars, led by Hudson Institute distinguished fellow Christopher DeMuth, Boston College professor R. Shep Melnick, and American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy (AEI) senior fellow Karlyn Bowman.  The Weekly Standard editor William Kristol, another Bradley Prize recipient, and National Affairs editor Yuval Levin co-moderated.

"Knowledge and Governance in American Democracy:  The Legacy of James Q. Wilson," continued a tradition of convening -- during the morning before the celebratory Bradley Prizes ceremony in the evening -- a wide-ranging and substantive discussion about important political and cultural issues facing the country with its most-prominent intellectuals, commentators, activists, and philanthropists.

Audio clips of the proceedings is available online.  Video clips and an edited transcript will be available soon.

Milwaukee's Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation substantially supports the Hudson Institute's Bradley Center for Philanthropy and Civic Renewal, National Affairs, and AEI.
