About

Eurasianet.org is an independent news organization that covers news from and about the South Caucasus and Central Asia, providing on-the-ground reporting and critical perspectives on the most important developments in the region. We strive to provide information useful to readers both in and outside of Eurasia for policymakers, scholars, and interested citizens. Content is published in both English and Russian.

Eurasianet is a tax-exempt [501(c)3] organization based at Columbia University’s Harriman Institute, one of the leading centers in North America of scholarship on Eurasia. We are funded by institutions such as the Open Society Foundations, Columbia University’s Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies and others, and are advised by a board of trustees.
