Place matters for politics and policymaking because the characteristics of local societies, economies, and environments differ. Governments may be increasingly responding to these differences by adopting place-specific policies and institutions. At the same time, politics appears to increasingly turn on place-based cleavages. In this roundtable, Margaret Weir and Neil Bradford will draw on their decades of research to discuss place-oriented political science in the United States and Canada, exploring national similarities and differences and how they should be analyzed.
