SSRC Presents – Anxieties of Democracy: Why Can’t Congress Govern?

Full Video, SSRC Presents, Videos

In a continuing series of events at Roosevelt House, the Social Science Research Council presents the next program on the “Anxieties of Democracy.” The SSRC has convened a group of experts on this subject to explore how representative democracy can be strengthened at a time when there is great concern about whether the country’s core institutions — elections, political parties, legislatures, interest groups, social movements, and mass media — are capable of addressing the great questions of our time. The evening will be devoted to the question of why Congress is finding it so difficult to contribute effectively to government and will provide insights as to how it can legislate more productively and creatively in the public interest.
