Founded in late 1989, the Center for the Study of Democracy (CSD) is a European public policy institute dedicated to the values of democracy and the market economy. CSD is a non-partisan, independent organisation fostering the reform process in Europe through its impact on policy and civil society.
CSD objectives are: to provide an enhanced institutional and policy capacity for a successful European integration process, especially in the area of justice and home affairs; to promote institutional reform and the practical implementation of democratic values in legal and economic practice; and to monitor public attitudes while serving as a watchdog of the institutional reform process.
Born as a think-tank, CSD has evolved into policy development through dialogue and partnership. CSD provides cutting-edge solutions to transition problems bringing together academia and social practice.
CSD has pioneered in several research and policy areas traditionally perceived as inviolable public property, such as anti-corruption institutional reform, and national security.
