Institute for Politics and Society
The Institute for Politics is headed not only by professionals but also by a great group of people. Together we are the most active Czech political think-tank that cultivates the political environment and offers solutions to current social problems. The mission of the Institute is to cultivate the Czech political and public sphere through professional and open discussion. We aim to create a living platform which defines problems, analyses them, and offers recipes for their solution in the form of cooperation with experts, politicians, international conferences, seminars, public discussions, and political and social analysis available to the whole of Czech society. We believe that open discussion with experts and the recognition of the causes of problems is a necessary presumption for any successful solution to the political and social problems facing society today.
Institute of Economic Research, SAS
The Institute of Economic Research belongs to one of the institutes established right after the creation of the Slovak Academy of Sciences in 1953. During its existence for the last five decades, the Institute has been transformed several times in order to adjust its research activities to the challenges of the days. These adjustments in the research activities had an impact on the name of the Institute itself. The Institute functioned under the following names: Institute of Economic Theory (January 1, 1991 to June 30, 1993) and Institute of Slovak and World Economy (January 1, 1998 to December 31, 2005). In recent periods the Institute undertakes national-economy oriented economic research which focuses on finding answers for the state, functioning, and directions of the Slovak economy. The research also encompasses utilization and cultivation of the country's potential, finding ways and resources that minimize risks and threats of Slovakia's development during the completion of the transformation process in the context of globalization and integration. The Institute's research integrates theory with empirical tools.
