Ideas In Democracy
Sub-Sections:

The project is committed to the view that democracy is considerably more than a form of government; that while the institutions and machinery of democracy may be important, the spirit of the enterprise is contained in its ideas; a complex network of ideas including freedom, consent and dissent, equality and equity, due process, toleration, privacy and the common good. The goal is to assist students understand the ideas: to consider their origins and their evolution, the tensions between and among them, their relevance in the structuring and restructuring of civic life, their value in molding the principles of how we might live together, in neighbourhoods, in national states, in the global community.
