Carnegie Diversity Initiatives

The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace believes that the quality of our insights and ideas depends not only on contributions from diverse disciplines and both political and national perspectives but also on the diversity of our community.

We seek to fully fund internships, junior fellowships, and research fellowships that aim to ensure that the next generation of interna­tional relations scholars and practitioners has strength in both diversity and talent.

Research Programs and Initiatives


The Africa Program, a new program at Carnegie, aims to illuminate a range of policy issues critical to Africa’s future, including issues such as economic growth, technology, democracy, climate change, and relations with external powers..

American Statecraft

There is an urgent need for a more disciplined U.S. foreign policy that is clear-eyed about a more competitive world, realistic about the limits of American power, and aligned with domestic renewal. The Carnegie American Statecraft Program examines America’s role in the world and recommends policy ideas to help meet this need.


The Carnegie Asia Program studies disruptive security, governance, and technological risks that threaten peace and growth in the Asia Pacific region.

Democracy, Conflict, and Governance

The Democracy, Conflict, and Governance Program rigorously analyzes the global state of democracy, conflict, and governance; the interrela­tionship among them; and international efforts to strengthen democ­racy and governance, reduce violence, and stabilize conflict.


The Europe Program in Washington provides insight and analysis on political and security developments within Europe, transatlantic relations, and Europe’s global role. Working in coordination with Carnegie Europe in Brussels, the program brings together U.S. and European policymakers and experts on the strategic issues facing Europe.

Global Order and Institutions

The rules-based world order is under unprecedented strain, buffeted by geopolitical competition, populist nationalism, technological innovation, transnational threats, and a planetary ecological emergency. Carnegie’s Global Order and Institutions Program analyzes the shifting landscape of international cooperation and identifies promising new multilateral initiatives and institutions to advance a more peaceful, prosperous, just, and sustainable world.

Middle East

Carnegie’s Middle East expertise combines in-depth local knowledge with incisive comparative analysis to examine economic, sociopolitical, and strategic interests in the Arab world. Through detailed country studies and the exploration of key crosscutting themes, the Middle East program in Washington and the Malcolm H. Kerr Carnegie Middle East Center in Beirut provide analysis and recommendations in English and Arabic that are deeply informed by knowledge and views from the region. Carnegie has special expertise in the dynamics of political, economic, societal and geopolitical change in Egypt, the Gulf, Iran, Israel/Palestine and North Africa; and Iraq, Iran, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and Yemen.

Nuclear Policy

The Nuclear Policy Program works to strengthen international security by diagnosing acute nuclear risks, informing debates on solutions, and engaging international actors to effect change. The program’s work spans deterrence, disarmament, nonproliferation, nuclear security, and nuclear energy.

Russia and Eurasia

Since the end of the Cold War, Carnegie’s Washington-based Russia and Eurasia Program has led the field in providing real-world analysis and practical policy recommendations with particular focus on political developments, foreign policy, arms control and nonproliferation, and economic and social issues.

South Asia

The South Asia focus informs policy debates relating to the region’s security, economy, and political development, from the war in Afghanistan to Pakistan’s internal dynamics to U.S. engagement with India.

Sustainability, Climate, and Geopolitics

The Carnegie Sustainability, Climate, and Geopolitics Program focuses on regional implications of the climate crisis, adaptation and security, and global governance challenges related to sustainability and climate.

Technology and International Affairs

The Technology and International Affairs Program develops strategies to maximize the positive potential of emerging technologies while reducing the risk of large-scale misuse or harm. The program col­laborates with technologists, corporate leaders, government officials, and scholars globally to understand and prepare for the implications of advances in cyberspace, biotechnology, and artificial intelligence.

Funding Policy Statement

The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (Carnegie) is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization. It is an independent institution and does not take institutional policy positions or maintain a 501(c)(4) political arm. Carnegie is honored to work with donors and partners who share its institutional goals and mission. Carnegie’s integrity and independence is paramount. We do not allow donors prior approval of drafts, selection of project participants, or any influence over the findings and recommendations of work donors may support. Carnegie does not accept support with explicit or implicit quid pro quos attached, including anything that could be construed as fee-for-service. Carnegie publishes an annual list of donors in categories of grant/gift amount as part of our policy of transparency. However, given the political sensitivities in the regions where Carnegie centers operate, we respect requests from individual donors for anonymity. These instances are rare and subject to Board approval. Donors funding particular projects may be acknowledged in publications, official testimony, conferences, seminars, workshops, meetings, and other media as appropriate.

The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is committed to respecting the privacy of its financial and in-kind donors and will not share or sell a donor’s personal information nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations.
