Civics as a National Security Imperative
As a part of the CSIS’ Defending Democratic Institutions project, this initiative looks to reinvigorate and prioritize civics and civic education as an essential part of our national security. Working with leaders in the public and private sector, this project focuses on the opportunity and imperative to rediscover our shared values, relearn the fundamentals of our constitutional republic, and re-form a sense of civic identity and commitment in our communities and across the nation.
The most recent event in the “Civics as a National Security Imperative” public event series was held on March, 12, 2021 and featured FBI Director Christopher Wray as well as national security lawyers.
Our next event is a conversation with U.S. Supreme Court Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Neil M. Gorsuch. The event video will be available on April 14th at 1pm EST.
