Doug Imig's interests include social movements, social policy, community advocacy, and citizen involvement. His publications include Poverty and Power: The Political Representation of Poor Americans, and Contentious Europeans: Voice and Representation in an Emerging Polity.

Imig is currently focusing on two projects: “Building and Sustaining a Culture of Voice for Children” with the support of The Urban Child Institute. This project will produce reliable information on children’s policy, identify best practices for advocacy and policy change, and share that research with groups interested in improving the condition of children in order to build and sustain a wide-reaching culture of political voice for children.

His second project is on “American Social Movements for Children” with support from The William T. Grant Foundation, The Urban Institute, and Grantsmakers for Children, Youth and Families. This project investigates the ways in which children become politically salient in the United States, how activists and advocates respond to political opportunities in their efforts to advance political agendas for children, and how those agendas change over time.
