Samara Democracy Reports
Since 2011, Samara has undertaken research into the state of our political process, which we're presenting in a series of reports. These Samara Democracy Reports are designed to increase Canadians’ understanding of politics, investigate commonly held assumptions, provoke questions and elevate the discussion on the health of Canadian political and democratic participation in Canada.
The latest report "Lightweights? Political Participation Beyond the Ballot Box" examines how Canadians participate politically beyond voting. It's available to read here.
Previous reports include:
Over 2013 we'll roll out an ambitious research and communications agenda that we hope will inform, inspire and educate you about Canadian politics.
Our research will culminate in a yearly Samara Index, which we envision as a tool to help illuminate how politics works, specifically focusing on the relationship between citizens and the political process.
