Global Civil Discourse Map

Previous Padnos/Sarosik Endowed Professor of Civil Discourse Jeff Kelly Lowenstein noticed that there was no global map ranking the level of civil discourse by country. With the help of students from GVSU, this map seeks to communicate the implications for civil discourse of the tension between those people working to share accurate information and those individuals, organizations and governments seeking to misinform and disinform the public. We hope this tool will play a positive role in helping people engage in civil discourse and have thought-provoking conversations.
