Announcing Heritage’s New Research Institute: The Institute for Constitutional Government

The American people are excited about the changes coming to Washington after the 2016 election. For years, government decisions made by unaccountable bureaucrats or judges instead of the people themselves have fueled popular distrust, cynicism and disillusionment. Now, they’ve elected leaders who have promised to restore the balance of power and uphold the Constitution.

Changing course requires more than simply trying to enact policy reforms. It is also dependent on restoring the institutional foundation that makes human freedom possible in the first place. Unmoored from this foundation, the current trend towards ever-greater centralization of power in a vast administrative state under the nominal direction of the President will continue.

In an effort to help stop, and begin to reverse, this trend, The Heritage Foundation is establishing a new Institute for Constitutional Government. Its mission will be to educate members of Congress, their staff, the new Administration, and the American people on the importance of our founding institutions to preserving freedom.
