CESS’s core-business is capacity-building in good governance. We do so through training for civil servants, parliamentary staff and civil society representatives, including media; through coaching of parliamentarians; and training-of-trainers. CESS also produces policy-oriented research on European external policies and on democratic reform processes in the Western Balkans, Eastern Europe and Central Asia. In several of our projects research lies at the basis of tailored capacity-building, while in-turn, the evaluation of capacity-building informs our research.
