Christians Associated for Relations with Eastern Europe (CAREE) is an independent membership organization affiliated with the National Council of Churches (NCC) in New York, where its secretariat is maintained. As an independent volunteer agency, CAREE facilitates communications between the Christian Peace Conference (CPC) and the churches in the United States, as well as other ecumenical endeavors. Initially formed as the United States Committee for the Christian Peace Conference in 1965, CAREE was constituted in 1972, and incorporated in New York State. In 1980 CAREE established the Institute for Peace and Understanding, an independent agency incorporated in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, to facilitate the participation of the CAREE constituency in Christian-Marxist dialogue events, and other academic exchanges. CAREE operates with a modest budget, raised by contributions from denominations in the NCC. The Mennonite Central Committee has actively supported the effort from the outset.

Beginning in 1981 the organization published Occasional papers on religion in Eastern Europe (changed to Religion in Eastern Europe in 1993).
