The Transatlantic Project is aimed at fostering closer research cooperation among scholars and experts that study Central and South-Eastern European politics, security, economy and culture from the Euro-Atlantic perspective.
This initiative will focus on these regions (Central and South-East Europe) and will attempt to put regional analysis into a broader transatlantic context. Our goal is to bridge the gap between scholars and practitioners (academia, the think tank community and policymakers) by creating a platform for research projects, dialogue and cooperation on policy-relevant CSEE regional issues important on both sides of the Atlantic.
