Carnegie’s interest in strengthening democracy and civil society goes back many decades. Our founder had a passionate interest in the promotion of democracy and human rights and several of our sister foundations in the United States and Europe are working in this field.
This report is an analysis of recent thinking on democratic engagement and change in the UK and Ireland. It aims to shed new light on the future challenges for tackling the democratic deficit.
