The Carnegie Democracy, Conflict, and Governance Program is a leading source of independent policy research, writing, and outreach on global democracy, conflict and governance issues, and the interrelations among them. It concentrates extensively on international efforts to advance democracy, reduce violence, stabilize conflict, and strengthen governance.
Current major areas of focus include:
The program is directed by Thomas Carothers. Saskia Brechenmacher, Frances Brown, Rachel Kleinfeld, and Richard Youngs are residential researchers with the program. Affiliated nonresidential part-time researchers include Steven Feldstein, Matthew Page, and Jodi Vittori. Tiffany Joslin and Maria Koomen assist with program coordination and management.
The Democracy, Conflict, and Governance Program is grateful for the generous support it receives from the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the Robert Bosch Stiftung, the Ford Foundation, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, and the UK Department for International Development.
