About Eurasia Daily Monitor

Eurasia Daily Monitor is a publication of The Jamestown Foundation, based in Washington, D.C. Jamestown’s vanguard publication, the Eurasia Daily Monitor (EDM), was launched on May 3, 2004 and has since become a unique analytical resource on the emerging security realities in the former Soviet space. A reincarnation of the old Monitor publication, the Eurasia Daily Monitor surveys recent developments in Eurasia, placing the developments in a geo-strategic perspective and offering analysis that outlines their implications for the United States and the West. Led by a team of dedicated analysts, the contributors to EDM comprise a corps of experienced domestic and overseas analysts, whose skilled reporting is disseminated five days a week in a free electronic publication. With a readership of over 4,000 subscribers, the publication is widely used by U.S. government analysts and lawmakers, leaders and experts in the post-Soviet space, and everyday citizens who seek unbiased, unfiltered information that is not available through other channels.
