Centre of Excellence on Policymaking Systems in the Western Balkans (CEPS WeB)

The project aims to create the Centre of Excellence on Policymaking Systems in the Western Balkans (CEPS WeB), within the institutional framework provided by the Think for Europe Network (TEN). It would be oriented towards creating demand and raising awareness of the necessity for policy research and analysis at the regional level, through joint policy research and advocacy in the region. CEPS WeB would, hence, pinpoint regional aspects of policymaking systems, procedures, approaches, and capacities that are common across the region and go beyond national agendas.

The project will last six months and will comprise a series of activities aimed at conceptualising CEPS WeB. These activities proceed mainly through interactive workshops between the TEN member organisations and their associates in the process of joining. A public event will be organized in the last month of the project, to present the final deliverable of collaborative effort during and between the workshops - CEPS WeB position paper. In addition, research of comparative good practices of establishing centres of excellence focusing on policymaking systems and processes in Europe and worldwide will be performed.

This project is implemented by the Think for Europe Network (TEN) and financed under the framework of the Regional Research Promotion Programme (RRPP). The RRPP is coordinated and operated by the Interfaculty Institute for Central and Eastern Europe (IICEE) at the University of Fribourg (Switzerland). The programme is fully funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), Federal Department of Foreign Affairs.
