WHY WE INVESTED
This grant to the Brookings Institution supports its Lawfare project, a blog dedicated to elevating the discourse on issues of democracy, national security, and the rule of law. Started in 2010, Lawfare has become an influential platform for nonpartisan research and analysis of government policies and legal maneuvers in the areas of rule of law and national security. It is a widely used resource for journalists, government officials, and other nonprofits. Lawfare provides daily coverage on national security and rule of law issues, files impactful FOIAs aimed at increasing transparency of government decision-making, and provides in-depth scholarship on the role of Congress in crafting policy.
