SIW 123: Navigating Divided Government

Navigating divided government: As Republicans take control of the House in 2023, the Biden administration faces a raft of investigations and the president will turn his focus more toward executive actions than legislative achievements. He also needs to figure out how to raise the debt ceiling and keep the government open, navigating brinkmanship that will spook the markets, while continuing to provide funding for the Ukrainian resistance to a Russian invasion despite growing GOP resistance to doing so. He'll have to manage this with the narrowest of majorities in the Senate and amid questions over whether he'll run again in 2024. But Biden is not the first president to deal with divided government. In fact, every modern president has dealt with this. In an exclusive seminar with Washington Post columnist and editorial writer James Hohmann, students will meet with key players in current and former administrations and Congresses who navigated these stormy crosscurrents. A special focus will be on how power is wielded in Washington and how cross-partisan coalitions get built. This course is only offered to students attending the Stanford in Washington Program in Washington, D.C.

SIW 156: Washington Policymaking: A USER'S GUIDE

Whiplash! Since 2016, there have been three different Presidential Administrations, and a Congress that was unified (Republican), divided, unified (Democratic), and now divided again. There's been an explosion of major legislation (both partisan and bipartisan), Executive Orders, Court Challenges, Congressional Oversight, and regulatory changes. Given all of this, how much has the policymaking process really changed? In this class, students will learn the advocacy and strategy tools needed to participate effectively in Washington legislative and regulatory policymaking; as well as related issues such as Money in Politics, and Ethics. We will examine both the nuts-and-bolts and the complex intricacies of policy development at the federal level, considering current and rapidly evolving topics as examples, while also drawing on historical precedents. While living and working in Washington, together we'll learn the ways of Washington.
