The Center for Effective Public Management (CEPM) is a newly established research entity housed under the Governance Studies Program at Brookings. The CEPM “will focus on identifying and solving political and governance challenges in 21st century America. This center’s forthcoming work will concentrate on reinvigorating the U.S. government – along with public and private sector leadership – to be more effective and capable. Working alongside a wide array of domestic policy experts and actors, the CEPM will explore current problems in the American political system and ways to improve the democratic process (Brookings).”
