The Center conducts research consistent with its mission of developing a greater understanding of policy issues that were at the core of John Brademas' public life and of Congress. Research focuses not only on examining the rules and procedures of Congress but also on the ways in which the Senate and House of Representatives help determine the substance of law and policy for the Government of the United States—through their leaders, committees, caucuses, conferences, staffs and individual members, and through the interaction of Congress with the executive and judicial branches. Projects commissioned by the Center also examine policy implications on public life, and how legislation can expand or better it's effects.
