About this grant
Funding will continue support to the Carnegie Moscow Center, a public policy institute that is part of the Russian and Eurasian Program of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. The center offers a neutral forum for independent scholars in both Moscow and Washington, D.C., to contribute to the public debate and understanding of key domestic and foreign policy issues that affect Russia and other former Soviet Union countries. Multiyear funding will enable the center to monitor political developments in Russia; analyze Russia’s economic integration with the West, including efforts to join the World Trade Organization and the relationship between the European Union and the western post-Soviet countries; expand its analysis of Russia’s foreign and security policies; identify and study new trends in Islamic activism in the region’s changing security environment; continue monitoring nuclear proliferation and Russia’s commitment to nonproliferation regimes; and improve outreach efforts via the Web.Recent accomplishments included publishing a series of articles that addressed aspects of democratic development; organizing an international conference in Moscow on "Prospects for Russia" and producing a volume of essays on the future of Russia during the next decade; developing a research project to examine the state of the Russian middle class; and playing a key role in the World Economics Forum meeting in Russia.
