The Center for a New American Security (CNAS) recently 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 is inaugurating 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 will dedicate a session at its annual conference on Congress’s role in national security.
