Overview
This grant supports the Social Science Research Council’s Anxieties of Democracy program that works to stimulate, mobilize, and broadcast a better understanding of the dilemmas of legitimacy and capacity faced by established democracies. To affect scholarship and enhance the public conversation, the program coordinates over 70 top-tier social scientists, journalists, and practitioners, convened into five working groups with mandates to offer fresh perspectives and solutions. The Anxieties of Democracy program safeguards and nurtures a (rare) panoramic perspective — understood both comparatively and historically — in its approach and analyses, while anchoring the crucial civic role of university research in a robust democracy.
