About this grant

The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace will launch a two-year initiative to help funders, policymakers, and civic activists take the full measure of the changes buffeting civil society globally and advance efforts to rethink civil society assistance. Specific project activities will include: 1) establishing a civic activism scholars network; 2) convening six workshops and meetings; 3) publishing nine papers and reports; and 4) conducting ten interviews and consultations with assistance practitioners and policymakers. Through these activities, the grantee will generate knowledge, create linkages between the research and practice domains, and widely disseminate findings. Established in 1910 in Washington, D.C. with a gift from Andrew Carnegie, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing cooperation between nations and promoting active international engagement by the United States.
