Frontiers of Democracy 2015

Frontiers of Democracy 2015 will take place in Boston, MA on June 25-27.

While powerful forces work against justice and civil society around the world, committed and innovative people strive to understand and improve citizens’ engagement with government, with community, and with each other. Every year, Frontiers of Democracy convenes some of these practitioners and scholars for organized discussions and informal interactions. Topics include deliberative democracy, civil and human rights, social justice, community organizing and development, civic learning and political engagement, the role of higher education in democracy, Civic Studies, media reform and citizen media production, civic technology, civic environmentalism, and common pool resource management. Devoted to new issues and innovative solutions, this conference is truly at the frontiers of democracy.

More information, including a link to a registration page, can be found here.

Frontiers of Democracy is a public conference, open to anyone who registers. It follows the Summer Institute of Civic Studies, a seminar that is accepting applicants for 2015.
