Areas of focus

Solving the problems of government ineffectiveness is hard work, and requires a multi-faceted theory of action. The Center for Effective Government organizes its work and activities, and builds bridges between its stakeholders—scholars, students, practitioners, leaders, journalists, and advocates—around three key areas: ideas, education, and engagement.


Protecting and strengthening democracy will require all hands on deck. Our team is ready to lead the charge for reform. Meet the leaders of the Center for Effective Government.
