CarnegieCorporate Circle

Bringing corporate decisionmakers and Carnegie experts together to better understand and navigate the technological, economic, security, and political drivers shaping a rapidly changing international landscape.

About the Corporate Circle

The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace offers more than a Washington perspective. We offer an unprecedented level of regional and national expertise and policy insights from our network of more than 150 experts in twenty countries and centers - the United States, Asia, Europe, India, and the Middle East – around the world.

The Carnegie Corporate Circle engages DC-based corporate representatives through a program of regular in person and virtual events, closed-group and individual briefings, curated analysis, and VIP forums. Carnegie Corporate Circle members engage with Carnegie experts who are world-renowned scholars and include distinguished diplomats and senior figures from the defense, intelligence, and business worlds. Scholars provide global, independent, and strategic insights across all Carnegie programs. Discover more about Carnegie’s research programs below.

Several of our global centers have corporate engagement opportunities. Please contact Meredith Broyles to be connected with one of our centers.

Carnegie Research Programs


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

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.

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.

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.

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.


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.

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.

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 have 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.


The Africa Program 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.

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. The program will be the hub of a global network of analysis and insightful ideas that builds a bridge between scientific research and policy action to tackle an increasingly complex set of interlocking climate and ecological crises.

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.
