Does the name seem redundant? It isn’t. Many top scholars care more about contributing to academic journals than to the world around them, but it’s not their fault: The structure of academia encourages a focus on theory over practice and publication over implementation.
Imagine psychologists trading places with teachers, policy makers with those who are affected by their policies, poverty scholars with the impoverished, political theorists with politicians, sociologists with human rights organizations. Each has lot to learn from the other, and can take what they learn back with them after their year of interdisciplinary exchange.
