Series: Game Changers
Editor’s note: This series encompasses all of our democracy reform research from 2013 and earlier. Find our most recent research on the topic here.
Alan Durning writes about flawed institutions of governance. It’s not about inadequate or wrong-headed laws or policies. It’s about the rules of the game: the lawmaking procedures. These flaws often erode public trust in government in general, hindering our ability to act collectively through our democracy. In many cases, changing the rules can make all the difference.
