Abstract

The aim of this article is to examine congressional debates on the National Science Foundation (NSF) and more specifically how the concept ‘national interest’ is employed in the debates concerning the NSF. The fact that items are put on the political agenda and are discussed in Congress is already a political act, meaning that motions can be amended; they can be delayed or voted against. Therefore, in parliaments and legislatures such as in the U.S. Congress, items that are themselves considered ‘political’ and the fact that something is argued to be political or apolitical should be seen as a political strategy or as a political act itself.
