What is this hub?
Note: The ACCH is an example of a specialized knowledge “hub” designed for the US Congress to provide a comprehensive overview of our challenge in Afghanistan. It does this by focussing on the civilian side of US engagement in the Afghanistan war–an issue that gets far less coverage than military engagement in the traditional venues of Capitol Hill. This website is no longer active, but still provides one example of how to fill the gaps in the system to provide specialized or complex information to our Representatives, Senators and their staff.
Here below is the original text:
The Afghanistan Congressional Communications Hub (ACCH) is a non-partisan support service that aims to provide relevant and accessible information to Members of Congress and their staff.
The ACCH aims at neutrality, with the Congressional Budget Office setting a standard for our efforts. Our goal is to provide knowledge to aid Congress in analyzing, overseeing, and decision-making, about US involvement in Afghanistan.
