The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing cooperation between nations and promoting active international engagement by the United States. Founded in 1910, its work is nonpartisan and dedicated to achieving practical results.
The last decade saw rapid internationalization in all kinds of fields—from small business to terrorism to religion and social activism. Oddly, think tanks—even those whose interests are international—remained largely national enterprises, rooted in the views of one country. The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace was the first to break the pattern.
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.
