Columbia International Affairs Online: Working Papers

Institute on East Central Europe, Columbia University


The Institute on East Central Europe at Columbia University was established in 1954 to promote the study of the countries lying between Germany and Russia and between the Baltic and Aegean Seas. It is the oldest center dealing exclusively with East Central Europe in any major U.S. academic institution, and its program covers Albania, Austria, Belarus, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine and Yugoslavia. For many years, together with the Harriman Institute, with which it is currently merging, it has been designated an East European, Russian, and Eurasian National Resource Center by the U.S. Department of Education. This designation has permitted an enlarged variety of courses and other offerings, and support to outstanding students through Foreign Language and Area Study (FLAS) Fellowships. The Institute actively cooperates with other units within the University as well as other institutions in the United States and in East Central Europe to provide the best possible training opportunities.
