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.
