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.
