Aspen Ideas Festival - Future of the Republican Party

Future of the Republican Party

The Republican Party has seen its share of fractures, factions, and disruption of late: some in the party openly suggest that rifts within are caused by “right-wing religious nuts” and other extremists; others, especially the young in the party, complain that conservative platforms have become closed minded, racist, inflexible, and old-fashioned. How will the GOP build internal consensus on what it stands for? And who is poised to lead the charge?

Aspen Ideas Festival - Principled Pluralism

Principled Pluralism: Report of the Inclusive America Project on America's Changing Religious Landscape


How do we engage America’s religious pluralism as a force for the common good? David Gergen will report the findings of a new report, “Principled Pluralism: Report of the Inclusive America Project,” prepared by a distinguished panel convened by the Institute’s Justice and Society Program. Gergen will describe how America’s religious diversity is a source of civic engagement and how we can bridge religious differences to build a stronger social fabric. The sad legacy of religious diversity around the globe has been conflict. Yet, in the United States, we have largely escaped this fate. After the Boston Marathon bombing, will our luck still hold? The report provides good news and a roadmap for the way forward.
