Grants to this Grantee
for support of Lawfare's congressional coverage  
Lawfare is a blog dedicated to a nonideological debate about hard national security choices. Lawfare has cultivated a wide and technically savvy audience and effectively expanded their collective interest in areas beyond traditional security issues. Through this grant, Brookings will hire a fellow-level scholar to elevate Lawfare’s level of discourse on Congress. With expanded capacity and in coordination with existing in-house expertise on congressional process and procedure, Lawfare will consider the responsibilities, failures, and priorities of Congress through this nonpartisan forum. Such coverage will incorporate a deep understanding of congressional policymaking and a normative view of what the institution is and should be.
