About this grant

During the past eight years, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace has contributed to public debate on important policy issues facing Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States through its Russian and Eurasian Program. The Carnegie Moscow Center, a central feature of the program, provides a neutral forum for unrestricted analysis and debate.Multiyear funding will enable the center to continue its work of organizing conferences, workshops and other events to attract participants of all walks of Russian political and intellectual life; producing cutting-edge research; publishing reports, papers, a bimonthly periodical and a quarterly journal; working in collaboration with scholars of the Russian and Eurasian Program; and launching a project organized around security policy, border regimes and trade and economics.Recent accomplishments included conducting monthly seminars on contemporary politics; organizing a meeting with 70 participants from the Russian government, human rights groups, the media and policy institutes to analyze the Chechen war and its implications for Russian politics; and launching a research project to explore what has happened to the Russian middle class during the past 10 years.
