Expanding the Community of Fate
This research explores the conditions under which government actors and citizens recognize and incorporate the interests of others in their policy decisions and actions. To do so requires a change in beliefs about whose interests are intertwined and what it is possible and appropriate to do as a polity. This in turn demands changes in governance arrangements and, ultimately, norms of behavior.
