Areas of Expertise & Civic Involvements
Radcliff’s principal focus of research is the political, economic, and social determinants of human well-being across the United States and across the industrial democracies more generally. His work documents the relationships between public policies (and partisan control of government, and the quality of human life). He has also done work in conventional electoral politics, democratic theory, and labor studies. While his work is aggressively non-partisan, Radcliff has worked with labor unions (such as the AFL-CIO, among others) in regards to both the research on well-being and on electoral participation.
