Brookings Institution

For Support Of Lawfare's Congressional Coverage

Overview
Lawfare is a blog dedicated to a non-ideological debate of hard national security choices. With 16 million pageviews last year, 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 the level of discourse on Congress. With expanded capacity and in coordination with existing in-house expertise on congressional process and procedure, Lawfare will begin to consider the responsibilities, failures, and priorities of Congress through this highly technical and non-partisan forum. Such coverage will incorporate a deep understanding of congressional policymaking and a normative view of what the institution is and should be.

for the Center for Effective Public Management research to support Congress  
This grant is for support to the Center for Effective Public Management (CEPM), a part of the Brookings Institution Governance Studies program. In keeping with its mission to provide independent, in-depth research that leads to pragmatic and innovative ideas, CEPM conducts research and analysis on the U.S. Congress and its institutional performance, capacity, and problem solving, with an eye on the ramifications for democracy and governance at a time of heightened polarization and extremism. Through scholarship, convenings, and dissemination of research analysis and recommendations, CEPM will encourage and support more effective congressional governance and stronger principles of American democracy.
