Why We Invested
Currently housed on the Washington Post website, the Monkey Cage is run by a team of academics, including several from George Washington University’s Political Science Department. The Monkey Cage offers a medium for political science, government, and international affairs academics from leading universities around the country to share their research with a larger audience. Through greater academic engagement in public affairs, participating researchers and academics are increasing their role in the national dialogue and more specifically issues of democracy reform.
With expanded support, GWU and the Monkey Cage will work to create a more natural and permanent association between academia and the media with the goal of introducing the expertise and insight of political science research to the conversation on our political system.
