Jennifer Dabbs Sciubba, the Stanley J. Buckman Professor of International Studies at Rhodes, was one of the featured panelists at the US 2050 conference held March 22 in Washington, D.C.  She spoke as part of a panel discussion on policymakers and political Institutions based on her working paper titled “The Role of Institutions in Shaping America’s Future Demographics.” 

The paper was made possible by the US 2050 project—supported by the Peter G. Peterson Foundation and the Ford Foundation—which examines and analyzes the multiple demographic, socioeconomic, and fiscal trends that will shape the nation in the decades ahead. 

Prior to joining the Department of International Studies at Rhodes in 2008, Sciubba worked as a demographics consultant to the Office of the Secretary of Defense (Policy) in Arlington, VA. Sciubba has expertise in demographic shifts and national security, particularly the political, economic, and social effects of population aging, and her research has appeared in numerous peer-reviewed journals and popular media outlets. Recently, she was named to the board of trustees of the Population Reference Bureau in Washington, DC.
