Elijah Miller

PhD in Public Policy

Elijah is a PhD student in the School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs with a concentration in Urban and Regional Policy. Elijah recently completed his MPA at Florida State University where his studies focused on civic engagement, community policing, and police reform. His studies now focus on the ‘Solidarity Economy’ and the potential that this alternative development framework has for improving the political and economic conditions of historically marginalized Americans.

Substantively, his research examines whether solidarity-based cooperative economics can broadly replace the system of racial-capitalism that has long defined the U.S. political-economy. Given the Solidarity Economy movement’s emphasis of principles like solidarity, equity, and sustainability, he hopes his research will articulate the contours of a ‘Black New Deal’ that can address the seismic issues of racism and climate change.
