The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is a global network of policy research centers that aims to advance peace through the development of fresh policy ideas and direct engagement with decision makers in government, business, and civil society. With MacArthur support, Carnegie conducts research, holds briefings with officials in Executive and Legislative branches of government, members of private industry, and independent experts on Saudi Arabia’s pending policy choices about the acquisition of nuclear power. The intended outcome of this award is to educate policy makers and increase the quality of policy discussions on this issue.

2017 • 2 years • Nuclear Challenges

The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is a global network of policy research centers that aims to advance peace through the development of fresh policy ideas and direct engagement with decision makers in government, business, and civil society. With MacArthur support, Carnegie produces publications, hosts workshops, and leads an extensive outreach and dissemination effort that aims to resolve strategic dilemmas with a nuclear dimension in North East Asia. In particular, this project aims to raise awareness about the strategic ambiguities among key countries in the region, and to promote concrete ideas to mitigate the resulting nuclear risks they face.

2017 • 2 years • Nuclear Challenges

The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is a global network of policy research centers that aims to advance peace through analysis and development of fresh policy ideas, and direct engagement with decision-makers in government, business, and civil society. The purpose of this renewal award is to institutionalize several policy applications of Carnegie’s nuclear firewall project – an analytic approach to help distinguish between activities and programs that are purely peaceful and those that merit definition as nuclear weapons-related. The award’s intended outcome is to strengthen barriers to proliferation, enhance the responsible use of nuclear energy, and facilitate more practical discussions on disarmament, thus helping to close a significant gap in the nonproliferation regime.

$150,000

2016 • 1 year • Nuclear Challenges

The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (CEIP) is a global network of policy research centers that aims to advance peace through analysis and development of fresh policy ideas, and direct engagement with decision makers in government, business, and civil society. This award investigates how additive manufacturing (AM)—more commonly known as 3D printing—could shape the future of nuclear proliferation. By reducing the detection footprint, operational cost, and skill requirements for uranium enrichment and plutonium reprocessing, AM could lower the barriers to producing undetected weapons-useable material and undermine nuclear governance. This project aims to lay the foundation for a new wave of policy-relevant scholarship on the implications of AM in the nuclear realm.

2014 • 3 years • Human Rights

The proposed project will work with a newly formed network that includes India, Chile, Korea, Turkey, and South Africa to produce a body of analysis on the evolution of these rising democracies’ foreign assistance programs to advance rights and democracy; continue and deepen its work on the pushback against democracy and rights support and suggest more effective responses by the West; examine concepts of non-Western democracy to help aid providers be sensitive to local political circumstances without forsaking universal principles and ideals; and advance U.S. and European democracy policy in ways that adapt to new complexities of the international context.

2013 • 2 years, 3 months • International Peace & Security

Founded in 1910, 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. Reprocessing produces weapons-usable separated plutonium, and ending it everywhere would significantly enhance global security. However, ending reprocessing in Japan presents a particular challenge. This project seeks to understand the very real confines imposed by Japan’s domestic situation and to suggest constructive, politically feasible steps that would, over time, demonstrate the existence of a credible alternative to reprocessing.

$350,000

2013 • 3 years • International Peace & Security

This grant will support the journal Pro et Contra, the flagship periodical publication of the Carnegie Moscow Center. The journal, which has been financed by MacArthur since its founding in 1996, has developed into one of Russia’s leading public policy journals, bringing a range of insight to a variety of important topics unparalleled by any other Russian-language publication. Originally tilted towards a mostly academic approach, Pro et Contra has evolved towards a platform for critical thinking on Russia’s current challenges. MacArthur funds will support publishing costs and the Internet presence of the journal.

$400,000

2013 • 2 years, 7 months • International Peace & Security

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. This project aims to assess nuclear deterrence stability among China, India, and Pakistan, and implications for U.S. interests. It aims to inform decision making that minimizes the risk of escalatory behavior in East and South Asia. Funds will be used for partial staff salaries, travel, honoraria, consultants, and publications.

$430,000

2012 • 2 years, 4 months • International Peace & Security

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. The purpose of this grant is to support work on the implications of Conventional Prompt Global Strike--a US program to develop high-precision conventional munitions capable of hitting a target anywhere in the world within one hour--for nuclear deterrence and strategic stability. Funds will be used for partial staff salaries, workshops, and report publication. This grant aligns with the Foundation’s strategy to address the strategic implications of deeper reductions in nuclear arsenals.

$2,500,000

2011 • 4 years • MacArthur Award for Creative & Effective Institutions

The Carnegie Moscow Center is the most influential independent think tank in Russia. The Center is staffed by leading Russian experts on their country’s foreign and domestic politics. The MacArthur MACEI award will be used by the Center’s parent organization, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, to seed a new endowment fund, explicitly dedicated to the Carnegie Moscow Center. Proceeds from the endowment will be used to support and strengthen CMC’s programmatic activities, including seed funding to attract additional donors.
