The Caucasus Institute is both a post-graduate institute (university) and think-tank. In the area of education the Institute organises post graduate (one year MA) courses in journalism and political science. As a think tank it provides a forum for debate and conducts research and consultancy on the Caucasus and its development. Its publications, disseminated throughout the Caucasus and the former USSR, provide an insight into the problems of the region.

The Caucasus Institute is a grant-based institution. It has received funding from the UNDP, the Eurasia Foundation, OSI, the Council of Europe, the Heinrich Boll Foundation, as well as regional embassies of EU countries.

CI has been involved in Armenia-Turkey projects for several years. Along with the Heinrich Boll Foundation it has organised student exchanges with schools in Poland (ten students for 2 weeks) and Turkey (3 students for one week). CI Director Alexander Iskandaryan is often invited to Turkey
