From its main office in Washington, DC, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace provides analysis on key topics and regions, including East and South Asia, Africa, Europe, Russia and Eurasia, the Middle East, democracy and governance, nuclear, sustainability and geopolitics, global institutions, technology, and subnational regions, such as California.

It brings its global network together to pave pathways to conflict mitigation and resolution.
Post–Cold War assumptions about democracy’s progress have been upended.

The world faces an escalating set of threats that transcend borders, requiring global coordination and solutions. Whether that means responding to climate change, disputes in the global commons, the rising agency of subnational regions, or nuclear deterrence and nonproliferation, Carnegie looks at challenges through a global lens and offers tangible solutions to resolve the most pressing cross-border issues.
Across all regions, technological innovation is reshaping every aspect of life—and every aspect of international affairs.
