Center for Effective Government

The Center for Effective Government (CEG) believes that effective government should reflect the needs and priorities of the American people, as defined by an informed, engaged citizenry.

CEG’s mission is twofold: to enhance public understanding and appreciation of what government does and how it operates in all of our communities, and to protect core governing processes from undue special interests, through analysis, advocacy, and strategic partnerships inside and outside of Washington.
