Sharing core norms and values
Posted Aug 14, 2019 | NYU Center on International Cooperation

Countries at widely varying levels of development, with very different histories, are grappling with the breakdown of common ground in politics, leading to falling trust, lower citizen engagement in politics, shrinking civic space, rising autocratisation, and increasing political polarisation. In such conditions, differences can become sources of tension and unease, especially among groups who feel left behind or believe that their values are under threat. In this article for the NYU Center on International Cooperation, Alex Evans maps out ways in which both political and civil society leaders and citizens can find their way back to common ground and rebuild an ability to compromise on polarising issues.
