Project Name: 
Democracy Work Field Analysis
Project Type: 
Market Scan, Strategic Planning
Project Overview: 

As President Reagan’s legacy continues to be a beacon for democracy worldwide, we hope to expand our work on this front at The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation & Institute. The Institute plans to establish a Center for Freedom and Democracy in the near future. We are looking as to what the programming and focus areas of this center will be. There are dozens of other nonprofit organizations, public policy groups, advocacy groups, and other organizations that focus their mission and activities on our shared topic of democracy preservation and advancement. Before The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation & Institute begins strategically planning for future program development on citizenship, freedom, and democracy, it seeks to perform a market scan that collects and compares the work of other organizations currently in the field of democracy both on the domestic front and internationally. Based on this market research, this project will then identify areas of need in the field and provide recommendations for the Ronald Reagan Institute to inform their future program development and design of a new center of work at the Institute. 

The student should produce a comprehensive report that:

  • Fully describes and compares current work amongst non-profits, public policy groups, advocacy groups, etc. on the topic of democracy preservation and advancement
  • Identifies areas of need and a recommendation for future program development for the Institute
