    • Belgrade Centre for Security Policy (BCSP) is among founders of the OSCE Network of Think Tanks and Academic Institutions, and BCSP director Sonja Stojanovic Gajic is member of the first steering committee of the network.

      The OSCE Network of Think Tanks and Academic Institutions was founded by more than a dozen research institutions in Vienna in June 2013. It was inspired by a proposal made by OSCE Secretary General Lamberto Zannier in July 2011.

      The network’s current members: BCSP (Serbia), Carnegie Endowment (USA), CORE (Germany), Clingendael (Netherlands), ELIAMEP (Greece), GIP (Georgia), FIIA (Finland), FPRI (Ukraine), FRS (France), foraus (Switzerland), FRIDE (Spain), GCSP (Switzerland), IMEMO (Russia), IIHL (Italy), IPI in Vienna, METU (Turkey), KISI (Kazakhstan), LIIA (Latvia), IIS (Mongolia), NES (Finland), NUPI (Norway), OSCE Academy in Bishkek, PRIF (Germany), PISM (Poland), SFPA (Slovakia), SIPRI (Sweden), University of Bath (Great Britain).

      Intentions and structure

      OSCE Network of Think Tanks and Academic Institutions is an autonomous, OSCE-related track II initiative. Its members are research institutions from across the OSCE area, which are engaged in academic research and policy analysis on issues relevant to the OSCE’s security agenda. The network provides expertise, stimulates discussion and raises awareness of the OSCE. It contributes to the ongoing security dialogue within the OSCE framework.

      The network will help to clarify the substance of and the process towards achieving the participating States’ shared vision of a Euro-Atlantic and Eurasian Security Community.

      The network is neither an OSCE structure nor is it subordinated to the OSCE or its participating States. The views expressed by network members are their personal opinions and do not reflect the views of the OSCE.

      Network decisions are collectively taken at network meetings. The network’s steering committee and a network coordinator are elected for a term of two years. Jim Collins (USA), Sonja Stojanovic Gajic (Serbia), Andrei Zagorski (Russia) and the network coordinator Wolfgang Zellner (Germany) are the current members of the steering committee. Fred Tanner is the network’s contact person at the OSCE Secretariat.

      The network is open to think tanks and academic institutions that are willing and able to contribute academic expertise and policy analysis on OSCE relevant issues.
