The Institute for Politics, Democracy & the Internet (IPDI) is part of the Graduate School of Political Management at The George Washington University. Our mission is to promote the use of the Internet and new communication technologies in politics to enhance democratic values, encourage citizen participation and improve governance, at home and abroad; in short, to "democratize democracy." IPDI's blog covers breaking news and analysis of practical politics, good governance and technology.

IPDI conducts research that anticipates and interprets trends, publishes studies and guidelines that show candidates, public officials and activists how to make the best use of the new communication tools; and holds seminars and conferences that advocate best practices; teach new skills and allow for the national and international exchange of ideas on the democratizing uses of the Internet and other new technologies.
