To strengthen democracy around the world, organizations and activists constantly make strategic choices about how best to inform, engage, and amplify the voices of ordinary people and mobilize collective action. Research often is not available to serve the needs of these actors. The Center on Democracy and Organizing is a newly-established research unit at IGS focused on sharpening organizations’ capacity to make these choices by developing a generation of scholars from diverse backgrounds who can do work that simultaneously meets the highest standards of academic rigor and addresses concrete needs of practitioners.
