Open Society

The post-1989 era of “end of history” triumphalism has ended. It is no longer possible to assume complacently that liberal democracy is the end point of political evolution toward which all countries will eventually converge. The basic principles of what Karl Popper called the “open society” are neither self-explanatory nor self-executing: Pro-Democracy policies must be constantly articulated, defended, and fought for if they are to remain vital. The Open Society Project was conceived and established as a pro-democracy policy reform organization to come to the intellectual and practical defense of cherished ideals and institutions now under siege.
