Reforms work best when they work with the grain of our political system, rather than against it. The answer, in short, is more politics. In his new paper, Lee Drutman makes the case for Political Dynamism as an affirmative vision of politics, and lays out specific reforms that would create the conditions for it. Political dynamism is an attempt to work within the American political system that exists, playing to the strengths of our traditions and institutions. Please join Lee Drutman and the Political Reform program for an engaging conversation moderated by Melinda Henneberger as we ask “What institutional choices create a system that is open and fluid in ways that policy entrepreneurs can thrive and do what they do best?”
