Separation of Powers: Audacious Vision, Uneven History, and Uncertain Future: When the Founders were crafting the Constitution, why did they separate the powers of government into three branches—legislative, executive, and judicial? What were they hoping to accomplish? How has it worked? What does the future look like?

Join us for a discussion of the constitutional separation of powers featuring thought leaders from academia, journalism and Washington think tanks.
