For The Global Economy And Development Program

The Global Economy and Development program at the Brookings Institution undertakes research and dialogue activities to shape the policy debate on how to manage globalization and fight global poverty. This grant would support the program’s work in three areas: 1) aid and development policy, with a focus on informing the Post-2015 global development goals; 2) African economic growth and development, with a focus on regions experiencing a continued and rapid growth trajectory; and 3) inclusive growth for development, with a focus on the role of global institutions.

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.
