Organizational Status: Independent NGO, founded in 1914.

General Description: Founded by Andrew Carnegie, CCEIA is an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to research and education in the field of ethics and international affairs. The purpose of the council is to promote a greater understanding of the values and conditions that enable peaceful relations among nations. As a prominent national and international voice, it brings intellectual distinction and integrity to the idea that the moral dimension of international affairs needs to be understood along with political, economic and security considerations. CCEIA has attempted to define the field of ethics and international affairs by breaking it down into manageable units suitable for discussion and study. The council's research and studies program emphasizes themes that have a timeless quality and can be related directly and concretely to current `post-Cold War' policy concerns. All of these topics share three characteristics: They represent a sphere where power and principle interact, involve an issue where fundamental aspects of human decency and justice are at stake, and represent an area where the council believes it can make a significant contribution to the existing knowledge of the issue.

Annual Budget: USD 32 million (2000)

(As of December, 2002)
