What is the Niskanen Center for Public Policy?

The Niskanen Center for Public Policy is a 501(c)(4) organization that works within the governing networks of American politics to advance policies and politics animated by a spirit of thoughtful moderation.

Why do we think this project is important?

The Niskanen Center for Public Policy is dedicated to protecting democratic institutions and processes. Niskanen believes that maintaining a liberal democracy is not a partisan issue, and that American institutions must be actively protected. To this end, their Open Society Project has developed a center-right network of individuals and organizations opposing threats to democratic norms, institutions, and the rule of law.
