Aims and Scope
This is the first study to examine the work of foundations in the promotion of democracy, particularly efforts to encourage political participation among individuals and groups. In addition to providing a detailed theoretical introduction to democracy and foundations, the author analyzes four types of foundations along with their specific mechanisms and approaches, including those specifically geared toward low-participation groups.
