Strategies
Overview
This grant will support American University to lead a working group composed of scholars from multiple disciplines to help produce new research that incorporates the care economy and gender-disaggregated activities into macroeconomic models. The project will include three work streams: (a) production of macroeconomic models that incorporate paid and unpaid care of children, the sick, and the elderly; (b) measurement of the aggregate care economy; and (c) production of empirical research that integrates an understanding of care as an element of the economy.

for support of the Program on Legislative Negotiation  
With this grant, American University will continue to build and increase the impact of the Program on Legislative Negotiation, a joint endeavor of the Washington College of Law and the Center for Congressional and Presidential Studies. The program is designed to help overcome legislative gridlock and has four immediate objectives: (a) provide negotiation training for legislative members and staff; (b) train students and professionals through experiential learning programs; (c) facilitate and apply research on effective legislative negotiation; and (d) build a community of scholars, policymakers, and others who share these goals. Support for this program will enable American University to expand its reach as a hub for this effort.
