Negotiating Agreement in Congress Research Grants

Social Science Research Council

Processes of negotiating agreement in Congress are under great stress, yet we know very little about the mechanics, challenges, and remedies for this problem. Building on the Anxieties of Democracy program’s current work and the Social Science Research Council’s reputation as a leader in research granting competitions of the highest caliber, our goal is to induce scholars with diverse sets of expertise to probe this vital issue. Specifically, we seek to affect the character and emphases of research and writing about Congress within the academy, while developing understanding and approaches with the potential to influence legislative behavior.
