About Us

Democracy In Practice is dedicated to democratic innovation, experimentation, and capacity building. We believe that underlying many of today’s social, economic, and environmental problems are approaches to democracy that are exclusive, unrepresentative, and ineffective. In order to address these collective problems, we believe we first need to think beyond elections and develop better ways to do democracy. As a result, we are working to transform how people envision democracy, and to develop innovative ways for even the largest organizations, communities, and governments to be truly democratic—not just in theory or in name, but in practice. With that aim, we help transform open-minded groups and communities into laboratories of democratic innovation where new approaches to governance can be experimented with, developed and learned about.
