The Russia and Eurasia Program also undertakes projects that examine pivotal and timely issues affecting Eastern Europe  and Central Asia  such as economic development  , energy, democratization, HIV/AIDS , and human rights  abuses. The program raises awareness of issues related to these topics; investigates their causes, nature, and local and international consequences, and proposes potential solutions through a variety of meetings, seminars and publications.
Alongside its projects and policy work, the program builds and maintains strategic networks of scholars and experts for its various initiatives.
