Russia and Eurasia Program
The Russia and Eurasia Program conducts research and provides analysis, assessment, and recommendations to governments, non-profit organizations, the private sector, and the public. The Program’s geographic focus is Eurasia. With a focus centered on Russia and its post-Soviet neighbors, the Program also looks beyond these borders, from Lisbon to Vladivostok and the Arctic to the Indian Ocean to understand how the Soviet successor states are affected by and interact with the world around them.
Our major areas of focus include regional security, domestic politics, economic development, trade and transit, defense and high technology, and energy, among others. The Program also analyzes the political and economic relationships between the states of the former Soviet Union and other critical geopolitical actors, including the United States, the European Union, and the states of Northeast Asia, South Asia, and the Greater Middle East.
Through its publications, public and private conferences, meetings, and seminars, the Program investigates the causes, nature, and local and international consequences of issues in its substantive area of focus, and proposes pragmatic solutions.
