Center for Strategic & International Studies was awarded $8,554,373 between 1980 and 2016, including 30 grants in International Peace & Security, Migration, and Nuclear Challenges.

$600,000

2016 • 2 years • Nuclear Challenges

The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) is a bipartisan, nonprofit organization that conducts research and analysis, and develops policy proposals that look to the future and anticipate change. This award builds upon a previous MacArthur-supported project to develop and promote policy recommendations to reduce risks posed by fissile material in the military and civilian sectors. By building norms around fissile material security, it works to mitigate risks posed by civilian plutonium stockpiles in Northeast Asia, and lay the groundwork for progress toward an agreement to ban the production of fissile material for weapons.

$350,000

2014 • 1 year, 6 months • International Peace & Security

The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) is a bipartisan, nonprofit organization headquartered in Washington, DC. This project informs U.S. policy vis-à-vis India in light of various developments that bear on bilateral ties: the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, America’s “rebalance” to Asia and relations with Pakistan, and the administration of Indian Prime Minister Modi. Through research and workshops, the study aims to establish a common basis of understanding between Washington and Delhi of the obstacles and opportunities in bilateral ties and identify concrete steps that could be taken in each capital to advance bilateral ties—especially important given U.S. interests in South and East Asia, and the expanding role India plays in the region.

$350,000

2014 • 1 year, 9 months • Nuclear Challenges

The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) is a bipartisan, nonprofit organization headquartered in Washington, D.C. The Center’s scholars conduct research and analysis and develop policy initiatives that look to the future and anticipate change. Through this grant, the principal investigator will build upon the political momentum created by the Nuclear Security Summit of 2016 to broaden the debate on nuclear security to address fundamental fissile material production governance and to create a link between management of the fuel cycle and nuclear security concerns. She will do this through meetings, workshop participation, publishing articles, and pushing recommendations through media outlets.

$240,000

2013 • 1 year, 6 months • International Peace & Security

The Center for Strategic and International Studies is a bipartisan, nonprofit organization that conducts research and analysis and develops policy initiatives. "Nuclear Choices in Japan: Implications for Nonproliferation" will engage U.S. and Japanese experts in identifying various paths forward for Japan’s fuel cycle program in the wake of Fukushima -- continue programs, multinationalize them or shut them down -- and analyzing implications of each of these potential decisions for nuclear security and the nonproliferation regime. It will include a workshop, a report, op-eds, videos and a journal article. Funds will be used for staff salaries, conferences, publications, and media outreach.

$500,000

2012 • 2 years • International Peace & Security

The Center for Strategic and International Studies is a bipartisan, nonprofit organization that conducts research and analysis and develops policy initiatives that look to the future and anticipate change. The proposed project, “Mapping Asian Views of Power, Prosperity, Institutions and Identity,” proposes to update a successful 2008-2009 CSIS study with a new survey of strategic elites in 12 Asian countries/economies plus the United States, examining the drivers for cooperation and conflict in the region and assessing the implications for U.S. foreign policy and regional institution-building. Funds will be used for conducting the survey, staff salaries, travel, and conferences.

$300,000

2012 • 2 years, 6 months • International Peace & Security

The Center for Strategic and International Studies is a bipartisan, nonprofit organization headquartered in Washington, D.C. It has been perhaps the most active U.S. think tank in recent years in drawing attention to Arctic issues. The project will present a detailed picture of the internal politics and dynamics of Russia’s policymaking in the Arctic and its external policy manifestations. It will include analysis of how the rapidly changing environment of the Russian Arctic will increasingly challenge Russian policymakers. Funds will be used for personnel costs, workshops, travel, and publications. This grant supports the Foundation’s Russia’s Global Engagement initiative.
