Beatrice interviews Donald Moynihan and Pamela Herd, Professors at the McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown and authors of Administrative Burden: Policymaking by Other Means, which is out today. We discuss their book, which focuses on how bureaucratic or procedural barriers are implemented to restrict citizens access to essential services, from voting rights to abortions. We talk about how we need to re-emphasize the experience of the citizen’s interaction with the state, and how conservatives in particular employ administrative burdens to “legislate without legislating.”
