About the Author
Joan C. Tronto is Professor of Political Science at the University of Minnesota. She is the author of Caring Democracy: Markets, Equality, and Justice.
"The Institute chose to celebrate Joan C. Tronto's work because it forces people to rethink the obligations we have to one another in democratic societies. Modern rhetoric about democracy places due emphasis on personal freedom, but responsibilities can get overlooked. Tronto also stresses that caring for one another is less a burden than a fulfilling act, which reminds us all of how dependent we are on one another across the country and across the generations."--John Gastil, Director, McCourtney Institute for Democracy
