Ian Haney-López

Ian Haney López is the John H. Boalt Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley, where he teaches in the areas of race and constitutional law. One of the nation’s leading thinkers on racism’s evolution in the United States since the civil rights era, Ian’s current research emphasizes the connection between racial divisions and growing wealth inequality in the United States. His most recent book, Dog Whistle Politics: How Coded Racial Appeals Have Reinvented Racism and Wrecked the Middle Class, lays bare how over the last fifty years politicians have exploited racial pandering to convince many voters to support policies that ultimately favor the very wealthiest while hurting everyone else.

A constitutional law scholar, he has written extensively on how once-promising legal responses to racism have been turned into restrictions on efforts to promote integration. He has been a visiting law professor at Yale, New York University, and Harvard, where he served as the Ralph E. Shikes Visiting Fellow in Civil Rights and Civil Liberties. He holds a master’s in history from Washington University, a master’s in public policy from Princeton, and a law degree from Harvard, and is a past recipient of an Alphonse Fletcher Fellowship, awarded to scholars whose work furthers the integration goals of Brown v. Board of Education.
