The Carnegie Moscow Center was established as a subdivision of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (Washington, DC) and started its activities in 1994. Beyond the Moscow center, the Carnegie Endowment maintains offices in Beijing, Beirut, and Brussels, making it the world’s first global think tank.

In 2014, Carnegie Moscow Center celebrated its 20th anniversary. During all these years, the Center has produced expert research and nonpartisan analysis independent of government or commercial interests. Committed to the principles of international scholarship and objectivity, the Center pursues a three-fold mission:

  • To embody and promote disinterested social science research and the dissemination of its results in Russia and Eurasia;
  • To provide a free and open forum for the discussion and debate of critical national, regional, and global issues;
  • To further cooperation and strengthen relations between Russia and the United States by explaining the interests, objectives, and policies of each.

Carnegie Moscow Center is the number one think tank in Central and Eastern Europe, according to the University of Pennsylvania’s 2014 Global Go To Think Tank Index. It is a recognized leader in nonpartisan political analysis of key issues in domestic and foreign policy, international relations, international security, and the economy; its team of experts is enhanced by cooperation with the Carnegie Endowment’s Russia and Eurasia Program in Washington, DC.

Carnegie Moscow Center’s events—roundtables, presentations, seminars, and conferences—draw participants from across the Russian and foreign political spectrum and from Moscow’s media and diplomatic communities.

“It would be hard to imagine intellectual life in Moscow without the Carnegie Moscow Center. This is one of the very few organizations that bring together the political and intellectual elites of America, Europe, and Russia to discuss the problems facing today’s world and Russia’s place in it. The Carnegie Moscow Center has played an invaluable part in Russia’s transition to a free and civil society.”
—Yelena Nemirovskaya, founder, Moscow School of Civic Education

The Carnegie Moscow Center publishes up to 30 articles, policy outlooks, papers, reports, and books each year, in both Russian and English, which are widely distributed in Russia and abroad.

“The Carnegie Moscow Center’s publications have made an important contribution to Russian intellectual life. They have had a positive influence on the political decisionmaking process and public administration. They also serve the wider international community of experts studying modern Russia and the other states of the former Soviet Union.”
—Valery Tishkov, director, Institute of Ethnology and Anthropology, Russian Academy of Sciences
