Professor Light selected as 2011 Wurf Fellow at Harvard Law School

Professor Paul Light has been selected as the 2011 Wurf Fellow at the Labor and Worklife Program at the Harvard Law School.

Light, the Paulette Goddard Professor of Public Service at NYU Wagner, will work on a project dealing with the size and shape of the contract and privatized workforce at the state and local levels. The fellowship represents an opportunity for Light to expand his work on the "true size of government" at a time when states and localities are trying to downsize their government workforces by outsourcing headcount -- an approach some see as "penny wise and pound foolish."
