Pepperdine School of Public Policy to Explore A Policy Platform for Communitarian Conservatism

September 17, 2020  | 1 min read

Pepperdine School of Public PolicyPepperdine School of Public Policy will present “A Policy Platform for Communitarian Conservatism,” the third session in the Quest for Community: A Future for American Conservatism webinar series on the Zoom platform on Tuesday, September 22, at 9:30 AM PDT. Pete Peterson (MPP ’07), Braun Family Dean’s Chair at the Pepperdine School of Public Policy, will moderate the session.

The panel will feature:

  • Michael Hendrix, Director of State and Local Policy, Manhattan Institute
  • Holly Kuzmich, Executive Director, George W. Bush Institute
  • Andy Smarick, Senior Fellow, Manhattan Institute
  • Ryan Streeter, Director of Domestic Policy Studies, American Enterprise Institute

Often seen as a nostalgic pining for the past, and framed both philosophically and historically, a reimagined communitarian conservatism requires an actual set of policies in order to be realistically considered by the broader public. In this webinar, public policy experts will address the following questions:

  • Is there a vital role for government in a communitarian conservatism for the 21st century? Can government policy better support civil society?
  • How does the growing localism movement fit within these policy discussions?
  • How does the Constitution's framing of different government roles support communitarian conservatism?
  • How does this reimagined communitarian conservatism balance "community freedom" with broader civil rights?
