Democracy has spread worldwide, yet more citizens claim to be dissatisfied with democracy than ever. How can we improve democracy to avoid gridlock, to soften our uncivil debates, and to check the powerful in politics? This course tackles historical democratic debates and criticisms of democracy today, but lets students participate in real-world democratic practices that improve citizens’ debates so that they can better guide their political leaders.
