Issue Guides

Successful public deliberation involves all segments of society and provides for an engaged citizenry and an alternative to today’s often politically polarized policy debates. Public policies better withstand the test of time if they reflect the public’s values and informed preferences. To enhance citizen engagement with policy-making, the Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute hosts and facilitates nonpartisan, informative discussions on important policy issues.
