Our partners: European Stability Initiative
Although they are two different think tanks, Populari and ESI are in many ways similar. Ten years of experience in research of policy making in B&H and the region, resulted in close cooperation of these two organisations. At the beginning of Populari’s work, ESI organised training for new researchers in Sarajevo, and after capacity strengthening, work together intensified. A strong partnership and cooperation between these two organisations is evident in two reports which they published together, one report concerns ESI’s methodology, on which Populari’s specific work methodology is based, and the other is primarily comprised of field research, as well as a current campaign in the region for the visa-free travel.
