The Public Intelligence Project is an independent, non-partisan, not-for-profit initiative that seeks to promote more proactive ways to manage diversity, mainly by advocating for better methods of addressing public differences and empowering silenced voices. We believe that by creating a “culture of democracy”—a social and political environment that is marked by strong civic and community engagement and public participation in the decision-making processes—governance can be significantly improved, and conflicts can be addressed more effectively. We also believe that the foundations of such a culture are built on dialogue, critical thinking, diversity of thought, perspective, and opinion, and freedom of expression and dissent. The Project seeks to develop these capabilities through research, education, and advocacy.

Doesn’t a “culture of democracy” already exist in democratic societies though? Not necessarily; let’s take India as an example.
