Today’s political environment is changing rapidly, requiring a new understanding of how technology impacts governance. Harvard Kennedy School aims to encourage students to think critically about the various social issues, demographic changes, and the ways in which politics and government are affected by these changes.

In today’s political environment, influence on the broader political landscape has enabled nonprofit organizations to change the current political climate. The changed political environment is, in part, due to energy subsidy deals, ethanol policy deals and other policy deals that have been made in recent years. Recently, opine host Julia Pyper discussed how individuals and charities are protesting new policies that may be actions of the government or other party. This was demonstrated in the Democrats’ primary process where many state governments such as Iowas demotion of a subsidy policy had an effect on its landscape. These examples show how much power politics can have over a country and how those policies can affect its citizens no matter their party affiliation.
