Lawfare, a blog hosted by the Brookings Institution, has for six-and-a-half years led a serious public discussion of national security law and policy through reporting and analysis that is nonpartisan, useful, insightful, and timely. Brookings Senior Fellow Ben Wittes and Brookings Fellow Susan Hennessey co-edit the digital magazine, contribute to its content, and edit the contributions of experts in technology, conflict law, cybersecurity, digital privacy, surveillance, and executive and presidential power. Through this grant, Lawfare will expand its capacity and team to lead a technical, non-ideological discussion of national security issues for Lawfare’s hundreds of thousands of monthly readers.

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.
