About us

Eurasian States in Transition (EAST) Research Center is a Warsaw-based think-tank focused on Post-Soviet and East European studies. Our team’s members are experienced researchers and analytical journalists based in Poland, Belarus, Ukraine, Russia and the Baltics. We combine a cutting-edge analysis with appealing infographics.

We contribute to the objective analysis of economic, political and social developments in the region. Our three main lines of activities are media analysis in the post-Soviet countries, the study of Eurasian integration, and regular monitoring of the socio-economic situation in a number of CIS-countries.

Our advantages are promptness and wide use of elaborate infographics and visuals.
