The University of Virginia’s Democracy Initiative was launched in 2018 to “study and advance the prospects of democracy around the world.” WUVA met with the Initiative’s co-director for policy and public affairs, Melody Barnes, to learn more about what has been accomplished in the project’s first year and what comes next for the Democracy Initiative.
