A New Vision for the Carnegie Endowment

Building on the strength of its century-long practice of changing as global circumstances change, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is undertaking a fundamental redefinition of its role and mission.  Carnegie aims to transform itself from a think tank on international issues to the first truly multinational — ultimately global — think tank.

With operations in Moscow, Beijing, Beirut, Brussels, and Washington, the Carnegie Endowment will not only change its nature but is also likely to alter the way think tanks operate and can be effective in a global marketplace of ideas where a single national outlook is bound to be overly restrictive.

Be the change you wish to see in the world.
