One of the BSF strategic goals is to increase the participation of think-tanks (especially those from Balkans) at the BSF, so to promote original knowledge production and research-based discussions on the topics that the BSF addresses.
Thanks to the OSF financial support, this is the second year that we organize a BSF panel for think-tankers from the Western Balkans.
The panelists are selected through an open call for policy papers which this year was entitled ‘Balkan 2025 – What Kind of Future Can We Expect?’.
Among a number of high-quality applications from the region, we have selected four policy papers (from Skoplje, Belgrade, Podgorica and Athens) that will be presented at the BSF 2018.
