About The Foundation 

The Gorbachev Foundation, an organisation of socio-economic and political studies, was founded in January, 1992. 

The official inauguration of the Foundation took place on March 3rd, 1992. 

The founders of the Gorbachev Foundation were:

::. Mikhail Sergheevich Gorbachev, former President of the USSR and current President of the International Green Cross;

::. the National Branch of the International Foundation for Survival and Development (then presided over by the scholar Evgheni Velikhov);

::. the Association of Foreign Politics (then presided over by Eduard Shevardnadze);

:.. the Economic and Social Reforms Foundation (then presided over by the scholar Stanislav Shatalin);

::. the academician Alexandr Jakovlev, and

::. Grigory Revenko, former director of the PresidentĀ¹s Administration of the USSR.

The Gorbachev Foundation is managed by a Board of Directors. The President of the Council is Mikhail Gorbachev. The Vice-President is Irina Virganskaya (M. S. GorbachevĀ¹s daughter).

The Foundation is a non-profit organisation and does not operate under the auspices of any State government.

It decides, in an autonomous manner, directions to take regarding the development of both Russia and the rest of the world, in accordance with the laws of the countries in which it operates. Both body corporate and citizens of any class or condition of life are allowed to participate in the activities of the Foundation.

Branch offices of the Gorbachev Foundation currently exist in the USA, Germany, Italy, Holland, Canada and several other countries. They are all autonomous from an administrational point of view, yet closely linked to the headquarters in Moscow by common ideas and visions.

The Foundation also maintains ties with other organisations of the same type.
