In fall 2018 The Graduate Center, CUNY launched The Promise and Perils of Democracy to examine the state of democracy and envision its future in a rapidly changing world.
This website encapsulates the ideas shared by leaders and scholars from The Graduate Center and across the world. It has become a resource to many, especially amid the crises and turmoil of the last few years. We invite you to explore the event videos, news, and scholarship posted here.
Watch for news about the project’s final, culminating event, expected later in 2021.
Our deep thanks to Carnegie Corporation of New York for its generous support of this vital project.
