Eurasianet is a website based in the United States[1] that provides news, information and analysis on countries in Central Asia, the Caucasus region, Russia and Southwest Asia.[2][3] Launched in 2000, it operated under the auspices of the Eurasia Project of the Open Society Foundations (OSF). Eurasianet spun off in 2016 to become an independent, tax-exempt non-profit news organization.[2][4] The online media outlet is now hosted by Columbia University's Harriman Institute.[5][6] The site receives support from Google, OSF and the National Endowment for Democracy.[7][8]

Eurasianet has won EPpy Awards for its special feature website on the Kyrgyz Revolution Revisited (2007) and for Best News website with under 250,000 monthly visitors (2011).[9][10] It has also received numerous citations from the Webby Awards.
