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 support of the Economic Studies program’s work to improve the federal budget process  
This Brookings Institution project seeks to rebuild trust in the federal budget process among both parties and the American people. Building on almost five years of previous work on budget process reform, the overall purpose of the project will be to foster improvements and reforms in the way Congress conducts its "power of the purse" functions and to help strengthen the possibilities for achieving reforms in the current climate.
