A Madisonian Constitution for All examines the state of American constitutional democracy today through the lens of James Madison.

As part of the initiative, the Center has convened a bipartisan national commission comprised of top constitutional scholars, leading thought leaders, and members of Congress. A key component arising from the Madisonian Commission is an essay series examining the various issues and challenges presented by the unique features of the Madisonian Constitution, and proposes solutions and ways to ensure the future of American democracy while preserving Madisonian principles. In conjunction with the initiative, the Center has partnered with The Atlantic on a web platform convening leading scholars and a range of thought leaders. The Center has also convened the Madisonian Commission and essay authors for workshops and a series of public panels.
