Overview
To address the current crisis of American public life, the Institute for American Values conducts programmatic work aimed at reducing societal polarization — the process of society separating into mutually antagonistic groups that increasingly do not trust or even know one another. Polarization is a main reason why Americans are angry and frustrated about politics and why U.S. public life today is so dysfunctional. The institute has a program called Better Angels that is a bipartisan network of scholars and leaders whose goals are to bring people together from across the divides to rethink currently polarized issues, show why reducing polarization is an important priority, and recommend public policy and institutional reforms that will permit progress and compromise to be substituted for impasse and frustration.
