Welcome to the Sunwater Institute’s Week in Review. Sunwater’s mission is to strengthen the foundations of democracy through interdisciplinary science, technology, and open dialogue. Each week, we will provide you with an inside look into our projects, discussions, and publications.

Congressional Reform

Be sure to listen to Parts One and Two of our Congressional Reform Conversation featuring Representative Derek Kilmer (WA-D-6). Kilmer is serving his fifth term in Congress and is the Chair for the Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress.

Rights & Liberties

Sunwater scholar, Joseph Kochanek, hosts a series on the Federalist Papers to discuss what our founders thought at the time they were written, and relates these concepts to the present day. Here you can find Federalist No. 1.

Property, Markets, Trade

Sunwater Institute’s external scholar, Robert Gmeiner, has co-authored an article for the International Review of Law and Economics: Encouraging Domestic Innovation by Protecting Foreign Intellectual Property.
