Overview
In 2013, with initial support from the Hewlett Foundation, the Brookings Institution’s Governance Studies Program launched its Strengthening American Democracy Initiative. The Initiative has since undertaken new and much-needed research on the causes of, and potential solutions to, rising dysfunction in the U.S. political system. Topics explored include the changing nature of political parties, possibilities for electoral or institutional reforms, and possible improvements to civic education and news coverage. This grant would allow Brookings not only to continue its research and publications, but also—through events and through its curated website—to better connect academics, practitioners, and policymakers working to address these problems.
