Darius Callier’s history has greatly shaped this project and his ambitions for his book project on democracy and the modern challenges democracies face. Darius worked in New York City in project management for the implementation of policy for the city government before becoming a freelance writer and research consultant. From New York City’s Mayor’s Office, Darius utilized his progress toward a master’s degree in public policy and international development at Georgetown University to lead analysis of social policy, public health, and environmental sustainability for planning and evaluation purposes. Darius has also pursued postgraduate study in sociology, political economy, and international relations during the pandemic in virtual summer school programs at the Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals in Barcelona, and the Paris Institute of Political Studies.


During my stay at faberllull I am going to work on the progress for a nonfiction book project on modern challenges of democracies and social inequality. Accordingly, my book proposal represents an attempt both to synthesize research, postgraduate study, and experiences in municipal governance. My ambition for my completed nonfiction book manuscript is that it will offer relevant and accessible contextualization of political developments with its unique deployment of storytelling techniques alongside multidisciplinary social science frameworks. In specific, I am writing with a discreet objective in mind – to complete a polished 75-page sample of my introduction chapters, which will serve as proof of my writing ability in my interactions with book agents, who will represent my work with publishers. Additionally, I hope to continue work on several chapters with any remainder time to fill the entire three weeks with focused writing progress towards a completed manuscript draft.
