Caspian Policy Center (CPC) is an independent, nonprofit research think tank based in Washington D.C. Economic, political, energy and security issues of the Caspian region constitute the central research focus of the Center. The Caspian region, at the crossroads of the East and the West, is increasingly becoming a crucial area of global interest with its rich natural resources, geopolitical rivalry and economic development. Established in 2016, the Center aims at becoming a primary research and debate platform in the Caspian region with relevant publications, events, projects and media productions to nurture a comprehensive understanding of the intertwined affairs of the Caspian region. With an inclusive, scholarly and innovative approach, the Caspian Policy Center presents a platform where diverse voices from academia, business and policy world from both the region and the nation’s capital interact to produce distinct ideas and insights to the outstanding issues of the region.

Getting involved with the Caspian Policy Center is a great way to take advantage of frequent opportunities to engage with our experts. With invitations to private events in Washington, New York, Boston, and other cities both in the United States and Greater Caspian Region, our members engage in substantive exchanges with the CPC experts and each other in a variety of settings—from small roundtable-style events to more expansive conversations such as forums and conferences. Throughout the year, our members receive complimentary publications by the CPC scholars and periodic special communications from the Executive Director Efgan Nifti. The CPC Board of Advisors is our core group of donors, providing the unrestricted support that makes our research, events, and publications possible.
