Shawnee State University’s Justin Rex presented at the annual conference in Chicago, IL
Shawnee State University’s Justin Rex, Assistant Professor of Political Science, attended the 2016 Midwest Political Science Association (MPSA) Annual Conference in Chicago, IL.
At the conference, Dr. Rex presented his research that focused on a typology he created to distinguish among types of capture and its scope within the industry, agency and broader regulatory system. Then, he demonstrated the utility of this typology using federal financial regulation before the 2008 financial crisis.
“The conference was a valuable way to not only stay current in the field of political science, but a great opportunity to receive feedback on my research,” said Dr. Rex. “The most helpful feedback I received was how to better define private business interest and the public interest to make an argument for cases when regulators are sometimes not serving the public interest.”
The MPSA is dedicated to the advancement of scholarship in all areas of political science to promote professional study and teaching of political science. MPSA publishes the American Journal of Political Science, a premier journal for research of political science. MPSA holds one of the largest political science conferences with more than 5,000 presenters from throughout the United States and around the world.
