Grants to this Grantee
for support of the Democracy, Conflict, and Governance Program
The Democracy, Conflict, and Governance Program of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, a long-standing source of independent, practical analysis and policy outreach on aiding democracy in the developing world and post-communist countries, will continue to expand its work relating to the serious challenges facing democracy in the United States and other wealthy, established democracies. The aim will be to provide concerned political and civic activists, political and policy actors, and philanthropists desiring to improve democracy with focused, actionable comparative research and learning that sheds new light on central political dilemmas and difficulties.
for strategic planning for the Technology and International Affairs Program
for the nuclear policy program
The Nuclear Policy Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is one of the Nuclear Security Initiative’s anchor grantees. Over the past four years, Carnegie has shown itself to have unmatchable impact on international nuclear policies, including successfully negotiating principles of conduct for nuclear power reactor exporters that will allow vendors to hold their competitors accountable for nuclear safety and security. The principles of conduct provide a unique way of increasing the safety and security of nuclear power plants and could dramatically change the industry. Over the next two years, Carnegie’s Nuclear Policy Program will continue to improve nuclear security in the United States and abroad by working to bring key countries like Brazil, Turkey, and Pakistan into the global debate on nuclear policy and nuclear energy. These countries will have increasing leverage in global and regional nuclear policy in the future. Finally, Carnegie’s Nuclear Policy Program will also continue to focus on the importance of limiting nuclear use, rather than focusing exclusively on the number of weapons that exist. This distinction could be key in overcoming the current dysfunction in the U.S. Congress by garnering support for actions other than work on treaties in the United States and abroad.
