The Carter Center

About The Carter Center

Our Mission
The Carter Center is guided by the principles of our Founders, Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter. Founded, in partnership with Emory University, on a fundamental commitment to human rights and the alleviation of human suffering, the Center seeks to prevent and resolve conflicts, enhance freedom and democracy, and improve health:

• The Center believes that people can improve their own lives when provided with the necessary skills, knowledge, and access to resources.

• The Center emphasizes action and measurable results in the lives of the people it seeks to help.

• The Center values the courage to break new ground, fill vacuums, and address the most difficult problems in the most difficult situations.

• The Center recognizes that solving difficult problems requires careful analysis, relentless persistence, and the recognition that failure is an acceptable risk.

• The Center is non‐partisan and it seeks to work collaboratively with other organizations from the highest levels of government to local communities.
