The Tuft’s Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service (Mass.) will be hosting the Frontiers of Democracy in Boston, Mass., this year. The conference will take place June 25-27, 2015.
Each year Frontiers of Democracy focuses on how to improve citizens’ engagement with their government, communities and the people around them. This year, specific topics include deliberative democracy, civil and human rights, social justice, community organizing and development, civic learning and political engagement, the role of higher education in democracy, Civic Studies, media reform and citizen media production, civic technology, civic environmentalism and common pool resource management.
While the main focus of the conference is interactive discussion, Frontiers will feature short talks from Harry Boyte (Center for Democracy and Citizenship), Hahrie Han (Wellesley College), Diana Hess (Spencer Foundation), Caroline Lee (Lafayette College), Ajume Wingo (University of Colorado) and Brenda Wright (Demos).
