The SSRC’s Anxieties of Democracy program is motivated by a concern about whether the core institutions and participants of American democracy can capably address large problems in the public interest, in particular wealth inequality, climate change, national security, and a changing media landscape.

The work of the Anxieties of Democracy program is possible due to generous funding from the William & Flora Hewlett Foundation, Carnegie Foundation, Ford Foundation, Knight Foundation and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
