Bipartisan Policy Center

The Bipartisan Policy Center’s Democracy Project analyzes and advocates for improvements to our democratic institutions; driven by a concern about the tenor of our political discourse and a growing need to confront our many challenges together.

“In today’s polarized political climate, the Democracy Project builds bipartisan support to improve the ability of government to meet the nation’s policy challenges.”

2012: Up to $1,750,000 over two years

Why We Invested

​The Bipartisan Policy Center’s Democracy Project addresses some of the most vexing challenges facing our nation’s political system through a combination of research and the convening of bipartisan groups of leaders to identify common ground solutions. For example, research by BPC to evaluate the effects of redistricting and primary-election reforms in states across the country will help state officials assess their options for improving how elections are conducted. Similarly, research on procedural reforms in Congress will provide Congressional leaders with a better understanding of how changes may make our governing processes more efficient and effective.
