Overview
One of the greatest threats to democracy is the idea that it is unassailable. Recent developments have indicated that we should not assume our political leaders and institutions will follow the practices and norms that help guarantee American democracy. Bright Line Watch is a project hosted at Yale University that involves partners at Dartmouth College and the University of Rochester — as well as a broader network of colleagues at hundreds of colleges and universities across the country — whose overarching goal is to use scholarly expertise to monitor democratic practices and call attention to threats to American democracy.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Yale Center for the Study of Globalization  
The Yale Center for the Study of Globalization is a focal point for raising questions, triggering analysis and debate, and connecting policy actors concerned with issues such as global development, international trade, financial globalization, global public goods, and global governance. One of the Center’s international collaborations, for example, involves providing ongoing advisory support for the Natural Resource Charter, a set of principles on how best to harness the opportunities for development generated by extractive resource revenues. During this final phase of program support from the Foundation, the Center will seek to diversify funding so that it may continue its public programs—including lectures, workshops, and conferences—and expand the readership of its online magazine YaleGlobal.
