Overview
This grant to Brookings will support the expansion of the Lawfare blog and the development of dedicated subsidiary Web pages focused on cybersecurity and privacy issues. These pages would build on Lawfare’s interdisciplinary and cross-ideological expertise on matters related to cybersecurity, digital privacy, and surveillance and create a venue for cyber policy discussion that brings together a wide range of scholars, advocates, government officials, industry representatives, and other analysts.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of Lawfare's congressional coverage  
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.
