Renewing the National Security Consensus in Congress
In February 2019, the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) launched a major new initiative, Renewing the National Security Consensus in Congress. The project will promote bipartisan cooperation on Capitol Hill by offering a series of practical policy proposals for lawmakers and staff, creating fora for productive engagement on complex foreign policy challenges, and focusing dialogue on Congress’s role in national security.
CNAS inaugurated a new Key National Security Issues for Congress policy brief series as a key element of this initiative. In addition to its policy brief series and events for and with congressional staff and Members, CNAS dedicated a session at its annual conference on Congress’s role in national security.
