Created as a nonprofit social change think tank in 2017, the Institute for the Polarities of Democracy joins the tools and processes of decades of polarity approach development with the basic principles of democracy drawn from centuries of literature about freedom and governance under one unifying Polarities of Democracy theory, which the Institute uses to catalyze social progress through leveraging the positive aspects of democratic values at all levels of society.

The Institute supports social change activists, nonprofits, NGO’s, researchers, policy makers, and government entities with training and services to use our tools and thinking as nonpartisan solutions to oppression, discrimination, injustice, and policy challenges.
