"The Kettering Foundation’s 2019 review of research focuses on the relationship of the public to governments at every level. The relationship between the public and government has been a troubled one for many years as citizens have lost confidence in institutions and institutional actors have questioned the public’s ability to productively address the difficult problems we face" (Matthews et. al., 2019).
