The Kettering Foundation has just published two new resources on civic engagement and democratic decision making:
HIGHER EDUCATION EXCHANGE: The 2018 edition of the Higher Education Exchange focuses on a research question that has structured much of the foundation’s work during the last year: How can an organization come to align itself with a democratic citizenry? For both higher education and for Kettering itself, this question is a challenge to consider how we can create complementary working relationships with citizens.
KETTERING REVIEW:: Public goods are often seen as the domain of institutions and experts. This issue of the Review considers matters a little differently. How might formal public institutions work with informal publics? How can organizations and institutions align themselves with the work of a democratic citizenry to foster a better functioning democracy? These simple questions form the backbone of this issue of the Kettering Review.
