Presidential Ideas Festival: Democracy in Dialogue

University of Virginia’s Miller Center will convene political leaders, top scholars and students – future leaders and influencers – for a three-day event in and around Charlottesville for working sessions organized around specific aspects of the presidency. Each session will be grounded in one of the three streams of the Presidency at a Crossroads agenda: The Presidency and the Constitution, the Presidency and Policymaking, and the Presidency and the People. Each day will be anchored by at least two plenary panels featuring Cabinet-level former administration officials. The remaining events will be focused breakout sessions organized around a problem or set of questions facing an aspect of the presidency. The sessions will be organized as laboratories through which participants with different points of view will deconstruct the issues and emerge with proposed solutions. As the world’s preeminent organization for the study of the U.S. Presidency, the Miller Center is uniquely positioned to facilitate these Presidential Laboratories to create a space where understanding past challenges will drive the creation of the solutions for the future.
