The Aspen Strategy Group is proud to partner with Democracy: A Journal of Ideas and the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions on a special publication entitled Democracy’s Future: Abroad and at Home. Coming out of the discussions at the ASG’s annual meeting, our authors’ pieces aim to bolster democracy around the world and in the U.S. at this critical time.
We are pleased to be publishing these essays online ahead of the Summit for Democracy and look forward to releasing an expanded collection as a special print edition of Democracy in early 2022.
Contributors include: Michael Tomasky, Nicholas Burns, Anja Manuel, Michael J. Abramowitz, Danielle Allen, Kristen Soltis Anderson, Zoë Baird, Elizabeth Economy, Peter Feaver, Mark Malloch-Brown, Joseph S. Nye, Jr., Anne-Marie Slaughter, Milan Vaishnav, and Amy Walter.
