Overview
The ongoing debate about the state of Congress and its members, and about what reforms, if any, would benefit the institution and the American people, needs to be informed by scholarly perspectives from across the political and methodological spectrum. We are especially interested in understanding how conservative and libertarian scholars viewing Congress and its members through constitutional and institutional lenses understand the current dynamics and potential paths forward. This project grant to the American Enterprise Institute is designed to support a workshop and subsequent edited volume in which scholars well positioned to offer these diverse and essential perspectives will present their thinking.

for support of the Social, Cultural, and Constitutional Studies research division  
The American Enterprise Institute’s Social, Cultural, and Constitutional Studies research division is dedicated to examining the underpinnings of self-government and securing the preconditions for a healthy and vibrant political culture and public policy arena; revitalizing our core institutions; and building an energetic intellectual community devoted to these causes. Its scholars will pursue ambitious intellectual and scholarly projects in the study of our constitutional system and its institutions and will leverage the institute’s flagship outreach programs for maximum impact. In addition, the research division will house National Affairs, a powerful dissemination vehicle for a broad range of public policy ideas and political thought.
