About CCD

The Center for Communication and Democracy was founded in 2001. The Center conducts research, analyzes policy, and conducts practical experiments on the ways that communication can strengthen democracy and civil society around the world. The global communication ecology is constantly and rapidly changing with effects on nations, regions, states, and communities.

Our core questions are:
• Do new communications ecologies support or erode democracy and in what ways?
• How can we model and understand democratic communication at multiple levels?
• What are the information needs of communities and how can they best be addressed?
• What practical experiments in new forms of democratic communication are taking place at and which work best?
• How does democratic communication differ in multiple contexts?
