Discourse for Democracy flyer

What are fair and equitable ways for the nation to place limits on itself, its members, and outside actors? Managing immigration and our borders. Setting reasonable rules for firearms. Regulating technology in an evenhanded way. Join us as we discuss the ways in which policymakers set boundaries to govern behavior and the potential outcomes of literal and figurative fences.

Becoming an informed voter is simultaneously easier and more difficult than ever before. Candidates have unprecedented reach and access to voters, but so do political action committees and other partisan influencers. Enter the fray with us as we look beyond the headlines, memes and soundbites. Duke experts will explore a range of viewpoints on current political issues such as voting rights, data privacy, the economy, health care and more. Join us as we use a research-based approach to consider the contemporary political landscape and the historical context that has shaped it.
