WASHINGTON, Dec. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Political Science Association (APSA) will host a congressional briefing on the findings from the APSA Task Force Report, Negotiating Agreement in Politics.
Why: With conflict over the filibuster on center stage, the budget and other legislative battles looming on the horizon, and the partial government shutdown in October fresh in mind, we cannot help but brace ourselves for a partisan-laden beginning to the new year. We might reasonably ask why our elected officials don't come to agreement more effectively. This APSA Task Force report clarifies how congressional leaders can successfully negotiate solutions to the nation's challenges.
Who: Jane Mansbridge, American Political Science Association President (2012-2013), Harvard University; Cathie Jo Martin, Boston University; Sarah Binder, George Washington University; Frances E. Lee, University of Maryland.
When: Monday, December 16, 2013, 11:00 am – 12:00 pm (EST).
Where: Capitol Visitors Center – SVC 201. Closest Metros/Trains: Capitol South (Orange and Blue Lines) and Union Station (Red Line, MARC, VRE and Amtrack).
