The Patuxent Policy Group (PPG) is a working group of specialists, chosen for an invitation-only symposium that convenes once a year. The opinions and knowledge expressed by invited participants are incorporated in a White Paper that summarizes arguments and policy recommendations on a chosen issue of national importance. The PPG is organized by the Patuxent Partnership and the Center for the Study of Democracy at St. Mary’s College of Maryland.
