NYU Brademas Center for the Study of Congress Announces December 14th Forum — “Legislating for the Future: Defense” — in Washington, D .C.
When setting legislative agendas in Washington, defense has always been a controversial issue. But it will become even more controversial in the future as Congress eventually comes to grips with the War on Terror and other defense issues such as changes in force structure, Department of Defense reform and base closings. The question is: How Congress can address these defense issues before they become intractable?
This question will be addressed in three papers to be presented by the John Brademas Center for the Study of Congress, housed at the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service at NYU. The authors are three of the leading scholars in the field: Paul K. Davis, Principal Researcher, The Rand Corporation; Kenneth R. Mayer, Professor of Political Science, University of Wisconsin-Madison; and Michael O’Hanlon, Senior Fellow, The Brookings Institution.
- WHAT: “Legislating for the Future: Defense,” a forum on Congress and how it can address defense issues before they become so difficult that action is impossible.
- WHO: Paul K. Davis, Principal Researcher, The Rand Corporation; Kenneth R. Mayer, professor of political science, University of Wisconsin-Madison; Michael O’Hanlon, Senior Fellow; The Brookings Institution; and Paul Light, Paulette Goddard Professor of Public Service, Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, NYU, and Founder, The Congressional Decisionmaking Project: Legislating for the Future
- WHEN: Friday, December 14, 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
- WHERE: Rayburn Building, Room B-318, Washington, D.C.

The John Brademas Center for the Study of Congress - at the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service at New York University — seeks to advance the understanding of Congress (its powers, processes and political character) among scholars, students pursuing careers in public service, those working on Capitol Hill, and the public. It is named for its founder, the former U.S. Representative from Indiana (1959-81) and President Emeritus of New York University (1981-1992).
