Democracy & Society

The Transatlantic Dialogue Program on Democracy and Social Policy explores the challenges to US and European democracies: how do developments such as the rise of right-wing populist parties across Europe, the wide-spread appeal of anti-immigrant rhetoric in the US, a global refugee crisis, and the growth of new digital technologies impact our societies and test the strength of our democracies?  Through events and publications, we bring together policymakers and civil society organizations to discuss how to respond to such challenges in order to promote a strong Transatlantic partnership and inclusive democratic societies.

The program has two main pillars: it works to strengthen Democratic Institutions and promote green Social Policies (Democracy & Social Policy) and to improve migration policies and support vibrant, open, and diverse societies (Migration & Diversity).
