These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Left-Center sources.

Founded in 1910, The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (CEIP) is a foreign-policy think tank with centers in Washington, D.C., Moscow, Beirut, Beijing, Brussels, and New Delhi. The organization describes itself as being dedicated to advancing cooperation between nations and promoting active international engagement by the United States. It was founded by Andrew Carnegie and its work is not formally associated with any political party. The current President is Bill Burns.
According to their about page “In an increasingly crowded, chaotic, and contested world and marketplace of ideas, the Carnegie Endowment offers decisionmakers global, independent, and strategic insight and innovative ideas that advance international peace.”
In the University of Pennsylvania’s 2015 Global Go To Think Tanks Report, Carnegie is ranked the third most influential think tank in the world, after the Brookings Institution and Chatham House.

The CEIP is a nonprofit think tank that is funded through donations and grants. The website features a section that indicates their top donors.

Analysis / Bias
In review, the primary objective of CEIP is the promotion of peace. The website offers research that is moderately biased such as this: How Impeachment Affects Trump’s Foreign Policy. This story is actually republished from CNN. Another research story is original and is in-depth and well sourced: The Case for Transatlantic Cooperation in the Indo-Pacific. The website also features a list of projects and programs they are involved in.
Editorially, CEIP features an opinion section that derives commentary from outside sources as well as originally written content. For example, this story comes from NPR: Netanyahu’s Staying Power Reflects Israel’s Rightward Shift. Other Op-Ed’s are written specifically for CEIP such as this: Trump’s Crude Justification. Op-Ed’s from other sources come from Foreign Policy, The Atlantic and 38 North. In general, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is factual in reporting of information, but moderately left biased through editorial positions and sources used.
