The Institute for East-West Security Studies
Founded in New York City in 1981, the Institute for East-West Security Studies is an independent international center for research and dialogue. Now called the East-West Institute (EWI), it remains a think tank dedicated to addressing and promoting international security through conferences, public programs, and publications. Throughout the 1980s, the RBF supported the EWI program in U.S.-Soviet relations, providing much-needed general support that enabled it to bring together European, American, and Soviet specialists and officials in a collaborative environment to discuss policy matters and build upon shared concerns.
