The Carnegie Corporation of New York awarded the Center for International and Security Studies at Maryland (CISSM) a new $400,000 grant to research international security problems where U.S.-Russian cooperation could reduce shared risk. The research will particularly aim to generate new ideas and strategies related to nuclear, space, and cybersecurity challenges.

The grant will also support the continued student and faculty exchanges that CISSM has conducted with the Russian Academy of Science’s Institute for U.S.-Canadian Studies (ISKRAN), which have been ongoing for nearly two decades.

“At a time when U.S.-Russian relations are in the doldrums, this grant will enable to CISSM to continue to conduct necessary research, outreach, and education that promises to improve the situation,” said CISSM Director Nancy Gallagher.
