Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Russia and Eurasia Program at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. Inaugurated in 2018, the program is dedicated to teaching and research of a broad range of historical and contemporary issues related to Russia, Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and the Caucasus. Its mission is to educate future scholars and practitioners, generate cutting-edge scholarly analysis of the region, and seek avenues for U.S.-Russia cooperation.

The program includes the U.S.-Russia Relations Initiative sponsored by Carnegie Corporation of New York. Through its partnership with the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO University), the program provides students and faculty in Russia and the United States with unique opportunities to participate in joint courses, conferences, and exchanges. The program also hosts an ongoing speaker series, gives financial support for student research and internships, and fosters the development of the Fletcher Eurasia Club.
