The Democracy Project: The Fragility and Strength of American Democracy

This year's Democracy Project will consist of a series of lectures, discussions, and presentations on topics of Democracy in America.

Our theme for this year's Democracy Project is inspired by the inscription above the entrance to Churchill on the campus of SOU: "The Difficulties of Democracy are the opportunities of education."

The title for this year's Democracy Project, "The Fragility and Strength of American Democracy," will be discussed at the opening roundtable event, January 21st. Together we will consider this question: what is the nature of the fragility and strength of American democracy? 

The Democracy Project is dedicated to the study of democracies around the world. Please join us this year online and on Jefferson Public Radio (JPR) as we explore American Democracy from a variety of contemporary, historical, and philisophical perspectives.
