Paul Musgrave, says while conspiracy theories used to be confined to the fringes of national political discourse, they are now becoming mainstream thanks to President Donald J. Trump’s use of them.

He also notes that both political parties are now using conspiracy theories.
We are delighted to congratulate our very own Peter Haas as the 2017-18 ISSR Scholar. Professor Haas plans to further his study on Global Sustainability Through Issue Coupling. He will pursue research and grant proposal writing on this topic.
