The University of Virginia is strengthening democracy through civil debate
The "Democracy Dialogues" series is produced by UVA's Karsh Institute of Democracy, co-sponsored by the Miller Center, and made possible thanks to the generous support of the University of Virginia Office of the President, the George and Judy Marcus Democracy Praxis Fund, Ingrid and David Hang, and James B. Murray Jr. The goal of "Democracy Dialogues" is to strengthen democracy through civil debate.
