Celebrating Ten Years of Carnegie Europe

An award-winning platform at the heart of the European Union in Brussels, Carnegie Europe brings together world-class scholars from across the region to provide in-depth, independent analysis and drive debates on the key geopolitical trends reshaping Europe.

Carnegie Europe is part of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, a unique global network of policy research centers in Asia, Beirut, Brussels, Moscow, New Delhi, and Washington. Carnegie’s mission, dating back to its founding in 1910, is to advance peace through analysis and development of fresh policy ideas and direct engagement and collaboration with decisionmakers in government, business, and civil society.

Carnegie Europe draws on the resources of a unique global network, with sister offices in Washington, Asia, Beirut, New Delhi, and Moscow. This allows us to tackle Europe’s most consequential challenges from multiple perspectives. Three core programs form Carnegie Europe’s work.

European Influence

Carnegie Europe studies the shifting dynamics from Ukraine to Turkey to Iran to the Western Balkans and explores how the EU and its member states can make bigger contributions to stability and prosperity across Europe’s neighborhood.

European Security

Carnegie Europe analyzes new and emerging threats to the continent and makes recommendations on what kind of security architecture best protects European interests.

European Futures

Carnegie Europe examines a number of converging themes that impact Europe’s future, including populism, Brexit, migration flows, and rule of law crises.
