The Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA) is a non-partisan think tank with offices in Washington, D.C. in the United States and in Warsaw, Poland. CEPA conducts research and publishes reports on American policy towards Central Europe, Eastern Europe, Russia, and its neighbors. CEPA defines its goals as bolstering Atlanticism and strengthening NATO.[1] According to the 2019 Global Go To Think Tank Index Report from the Lauder Institute at the University of Pennsylvania, CEPA was the #5 regionally-focused think tank in the United States.[2]

CEPA regularly hosts talks with officials from Eastern and Central European countries, including salon style conversations at embassies. Past talks have included conversations with Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid,[3] Czech Vice President Vera Jourová,[4] and Romanian Foreign Minister Bogdan Aurescu.[5]
