The Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) and American Enterprise Institute (AEI) will conduct a joint project to find solutions to continuity of government challenges facing our national governing institutions — some emerging from our current pandemic, some longstanding. The project will use as a framework the work of the Continuity of Government Commission that was created in the aftermath of 9/11. BPC and AEI will reconstitute the commission and add a new and diverse set of commissioners with expertise in the continuity of the legislative, executive, and judicial branches. The commission will issue a report in late 2021 with recommendations relevant to new issues that have emerged since the original commission’s recommendations.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Defense Cybersecurity for the 21st Century program
A grant to the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) will support AEI's Foreign and Defense Policy team's new Defense Cybersecurity program, exploring how the United States can maintain leadership in innovation and technology. AEI's research will examine the rapidly changing geopolitical landscape surrounding emerging technologies, including artificial intelligence, quantum sciences, and robotics — and the role of public-private partnerships in strengthening national security.
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.
