Another Democratic Future is Possible

DemocracyNext is a global platform for democratic innovation.

We believe in a more just, joyful, and collaborative future, where everyone has meaningful power to shape their societies. We work to shift who has power and how we take decisions in government and in institutions of daily life like workplaces, schools, and museums. 

Grounded in rigorous research and extensive practice in the field, we’re both a knowledge hub and action lab on Citizens’ Assemblies, deliberation, and sortition - the practice of selecting decision makers by lottery. We connect networks who share a goal of innovating democratic governance.
