Jane Jebb Mansbridge (born November 19, 1939) is an American political scientist. She is the Charles F. Adams Professor of Political Leadership and Democratic Values in the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

Mansbridge has made contributions to democratic theory, feminist scholarship, and the empirical study of social movements and direct democracy.[1][2]

In April 2018, Mansbridge was announced to be the 24th laureate of the Johan Skytte Prize in Political Science.

Early life and education[edit]

Mansbridge received her B.A. from Wellesley College in 1961, her M.A. in history from Harvard in 1966, and her Ph.D. in government from Harvard in 1971.

Career[edit]

Mansbridge previously taught at the University of Chicago and Northwestern University.

Mansbridge is particularly known for the distinction between unitary and adversary democracy (based on common and conflicting interests respectively), and for her concepts of gyroscopic representation (based on inner motivation), the selection model of representation, and surrogate representation (representation of others outside one's district).[3] She is currently working on the necessity for legitimate coercion created by our need for "free use" (or "free access") goods.[4]
