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 and Frances Z. Brown. Saskia Brechenmacher, Steven Feldstein, Rachel Kleinfeld, and Richard Youngs are residential researchers with the program. Affiliated nonresidential part-time researchers include Francis Fukuyama, Erica Gaston, Beatiz Magaloni, Katherine Mann, Jennifer McCoy, Matthew Page, Ashley Quarcoo, Oliver Stuenkel, and Jodi Vittori. Marissa Jordan, Ricardo Farinha, and Savannah Wallace assist with program coordination and management.
The Democracy, Conflict, and Governance Program is grateful for the generous support it receives from the Robert Bosch Stiftung, the Ford Foundation, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, and the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office.
