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 on 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, and foster cooperation with institutions across the region.

The program includes the U.S.-Russia Relations Initiative. Through its partnerships with Russian universities and think tanks, 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, offers an annual U.S.-Russia relations book prize, gives financial support for student research and internships, and fosters the development of the Fletcher Eurasia Club.
