Frontiers of Democracy is an annual conference hosted by the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life at Tufts University. The event is organized in collaboration with several partners, which will include the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict in 2018. It draws 140 activists, leaders, and scholars for two days of interaction.
According to the organization Freedom House, democracy has been in retreat worldwide for eleven straight years. Many people are pushing back, including activists and organizers who are nonviolently struggling using tactics like strikes, boycotts, and mass demonstrations against entrenched power holders. Other engaged individuals and groups take different approaches, including seeking a greater degree of neutrality and emphasizing deliberative dialogue, particularly when they work within institutions such as schools, public agencies, and newspapers. This year, Frontiers will bring people from these communities of scholarship and practice together to ask how they can learn from and complement each another.
