About The Good Governance Project

What is the Good Governance Project [GGP]?

We are a non-partisan, student-driven initiative at Boston College Law School and the BC Clough Center for Constitutional Democracy. We advocate for faith in democracy, and for democratic structures worth of faith; inclusive, equitable and responsive. Using our Democracy Maps, we aggregate voices from across the state to advance discussion on key governance issues. We also provide legal support to pro-democracy organizations and legislators, and host events to galvanize and encourage faith in democracy.

The GGP Priorities

After studying our political institutions in the fall and winter, the GGP students identified three state legislative priorities to improve the quality of democracy in Massachusetts: same day registration; no-excuse absentee voting; and publicly financed campaigns. While there are many other legislative improvements to make to our democracy, which we identify here, these three priorities reflect the impactful, pragmatic, and common ground changes the GGP hopes to advance.
