Hear from Dr. Doug Koopman, senior research fellow and Calvin University professor emeritus, as he presents and analyzes the variety within the nearly 85 percent of Americans who are dissatisfied with government and politics today.  Drawing on local examples from past and present, he will suggest strategies to improve trust in and functioning of government and criteria by which to evaluate candidates and campaigns.

 

More on Doug Koopman

 

This program is the first in a series titled: Bridging Political Divides: Exploring the Radical Middle

 

As our world faces rising political extremism, some citizens have focused on transcending left–right political divides. They advocate for evidence-based policies and solution-focused political discourse that seeks common ground.  Through this lens of the “Radical Middle,” we can understand the current challenges facing our community and world, paving the way for more united and resilient societies.
