The Carnegie Moscow Center is a think tank and research center that focuses on domestic and foreign policy, international relations, international security, and the economy. It is a regional affiliate of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington, DC and a nonprofit organization.

Carnegie Moscow Center is the number one think tank in Central and Eastern Europe and the 26th top think tank in the world,[1] according to the University of Pennsylvania’s 2014 Global Go To Think Tank Index.


The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace launched the Carnegie Moscow Center concept in 1993. The premise of the idea was that, “in today’s world, a think tank whose mission is to contribute to global security, stability, and prosperity requires a permanent presence and a multinational outlook at the core of its operations.”[2] Carnegie Moscow physically began its Moscow operations in 1994, and became the first major think tank to begin work in Russia following the break-up of the Soviet Union.

Today, Carnegie Moscow Center is part of a global network of Carnegie regional think tanks, including Carnegie Europe in Brussels, the Carnegie Middle East Center in Beirut, and the Carnegie–Tsinghua Center for Global Policy in Beijing.

The director of the Carnegie Moscow Center since 2008 has been Dmitri Trenin, the Center’s first Russian director.


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.

While committed to the principles of international scholarship and objectivity, the Center pursues a three-fold mission:


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, academic, and diplomatic communities.

The Carnegie Moscow Center publishes up to 30 articles, policy outlooks, papers, reports, and books each year,[3] in both Russian and English, which are widely distributed in Russia and abroad.

In 2013, Carnegie Moscow Center established the Eurasia Outlook blog on its website, which provides daily, timely analysis of current events in Russia and Eurasia. Scholars from Carnegie Moscow Center and from the Carnegie Endowment regularly contribute to the blog, as do policymakers, academics, and other contributors with insights into the region and its issues.

The work of Carnegie Moscow Center’s team of experts is enhanced by cooperation with the Carnegie Endowment’s Russia and Eurasia Program in Washington, DC.


Carnegie Moscow Center’s resident scholars are well recognized in their fields and frequently cited by the world’s leading media outlets. They include:
