This grant will support the Social Science Research Council’s Anxieties of Democracy program. Developed initially with a previous grant from the Hewlett Foundation, the program "seeks to strengthen and integrate social science research and analysis on the obstacles to democracy’s capacity to address big problems and induce both younger and more experienced colleagues to work on the themes of citizenship, governmental capacity, and the substance of policy." The Council seeks to transform how the academy approaches problems of democracy and to better inform the public debate. This grant will enable the Council to execute its ambitious plans and includes a matching component to encourage other funders to support this important work.
