Project on the Renewal of American Conservatism

The Project on the Renewal of American Conservatism is housed at Pepperdine Graduate School of Public Policy and seeks to explore the future of the American Conservative movement. It creates a space for prominent academics, activists, political scientists, and other leaders to discuss how conservatism can better respond to the needs of the country and help to shape a brighter future.

Why We Invested

We believe our democracy requires at least two healthy political parties, because parties play a vital role in both representing the American people and developing competitive policy ideas to address our nation’s urgent challenges. The self-assessment of these parties and movements can help reduce the hyper-partisanship affecting the today’s political system by lifting up alternative voices to those driving the current ideological divide between the parties. The conversations this grant supports will form the basis of essays on conservatism and the impact of conservative public dialogue in the United States, which will be important contributions to the development of new public policy ideas on the Right.
