The Institute for Contemporary Studies (ISB) is an independent non-for-profit institute established in December 1995 offering alternative and independent policy analysis and recommendations.

Economic Growth and Social Development and Rule of Law and Democratic Governance are the main/focal areas of engagement of ISB. EU approximation and integration stands at the fundaments of activities and products of ISB.

ISB operates through a combination of policy development with advocacy and lobbing. We believe that the combination of technical approach with participatory processes of relevant stakeholders in policy development is the crucial factor for success and sustainable results.

Over the years ISB has proved to be a reliable partner to its clients: central and local government agencies, civil society, business community, and international organizations.
