Projects

Regional Project on Police Corruption


The project is a set of three workshops organized in 2013 by the Geneva Center for Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF) for representatives of several Western Balkans CSOs, including Analytica. These workshops aim to provide training both on issues of police corruption and in research methods, with the overall purpose of enabling participating CSOs to plan, prepare and carry out larger-scale research projects on police corruption in their countries.

Participants were invited to write small research projects to accompany the workshops. Analytica has proposed to undertake a research project entitled “Fighting police corruption: analysis of national policies”, which aims to map and assess the theoretical and practical challenges of implementing anti-corruption measures in Macedonia.

Regional Security in the context of European Integration

 

Security Fence Image - 001

The region of Western Balkans has endured a complex past of conflicts and mistrust between ethnicities and state structures. Various international stakeholders have been involved through various missions and programmes to try to pacify and bring lasting stability to the region.

The promise of European perspective as well as various instruments of assistance has helped to create some of the root socio-economic and ethnic causes of conflicts and lack of regional cooperation. While a number of Western Balkans countries are at varying levels of contractual relations with the EU and have managed to strengthen the security structures, Kosovo, Macedonia and Albania have struggled in the path for various political, social and economic reasons. The issue of security sector reform in Albania, Macedonia and Kosovo has involved a number of international actors. There are two essential streams of external influences in reforming the pillars of security apparatus namely (a) NATO membership and conditionality and (b) EU stabilization and Association Process (SAP) and Visa liberalization process.

Therefore, the project "Regional Security in the context of European Integration" was launched in order to examine the challenges of Europeanization of the security sector in Macedonia, Albania and Kosovo. Leading partner of the project is the Kosovar Center for Security Studies from Pristine and Analytica is project partner, along with the Institute for Democracy and Mediation from Tirana.

The main objectives of this project are:

a. To further strengthen the cooperation and confidence-building framework in the field of security between Kosovo, Macedonia and Albania;

b. To open new channels of communication and dialogue between security officials, policy-makers and civil society;

c. To substantiate and promote a more inclusive approach in security sector;

d. To explore the challenges and propose steps of addressing security challenges in the context of EU integration.

The project is supported by the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung and will be implemented until the end of November, 2013.

TRAIN Programme 2013

 

 

Analytica was accepted for the second time to be part of the TRAIN Programme (Think Tanks providing Research and Advice through Interaction and Networking) funded by the Federal Foreign Office (Stability Pact for South Eastern Europe) and run by the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP).

Analytica’s research team will be composed by Ana Stojilovska and Magdalena Lembovska. They will work on the paper “Security and energy sectors’ cooperation with the civil society in Macedonia – friends or foes?” The aim of this policy paper is to assess the cooperativeness of the relevant institutions in the energy and security sector in Macedonia with the civil society following the benchmarks in the Strategy for cooperation of the Government with the civil society and offering also comparison between these two sectors. The overall aim is getting a precise picture regarding the real cooperation of these “closed” sectors with the civil society and their will to engage themselves in such cooperation, thus drafting concrete recommendations for improving the situation.

About TRAIN

The programme seeks to foster a fruitful policy dialogue between think tanks and political actors in the Western Balkans. Think tanks and independent policy research institutes in the region play a crucial role in supporting, but also critically analyzing the comprehensive transformation processes of their countries on the way to the European Union.

Especially with a view to the European integration process, the voice of regional think tanks and their impact upon national policy-making must be strengthened and their visibility and credibility vis-à-vis EU actors enhanced. In order to build the necessary institutional capacity in the countries concerned and to support networking within the region as well as in Brussels, the programme focuses on four areas:

- Training to build upon and enhance existing capacities;

- Regional co-operation to exchange good practices;

- Interaction with national political actors to influence policy debates;

- Networking with EU actors to increase visibility on the Brussels stage.

The TRAIN programme is divided into four key stages:

1. An introductory regional seminar will offer the occasion to set the research agenda, exchange good practices, and begin networking. Targeted workshops will aim to enhance existing capacities with regard to the drafting of policy papers, media relations, and efficient dissemination strategies.

2. A mid-term seminar in Berlin will allow for reviewing of the draft policy papers and discussion with relevant actors from the German policy scene on the chosen topics.

3. A wrap-up seminar in Brussels will allow the participating think tanks to present their findings to EU decision-makers and thus to establish contacts with relevant Brussels actors.

4. The dissemination stage of the programme will take place at the national level and should bring together key decision-makers and stakeholders. Building upon the findings in the policy papers, think tanks should establish a fruitful policy dialogue and actively feed their ideas into the policy process.

RRPP: Migration and development in Albania and Macedonia: the effects of remittances on education and health of family members left behind

 

neu_small

Analytica is happy to announce the winning of the project titled: Migration and development in Albania and Macedonia: the effects of remittances on education and health of family members left behind funded by the Regional Research Promotion Programme for the Western Balkans of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation. Analytica will implement this project together with its partner from Albania: the Albanian Centre for Social-Economic Research in Tirana.



Analysis - Illegal Migration and Asylum

 

Analysis of the national policies and practices for dealing with illegal migration and asylum seekers

The fight against illegal migration is a question of high priority for the Western Balkans. Macedonia with its central location within the Balkan region is vulnerable to illegal migration. From the evidence on the ground it can be concluded that Macedonia is not their final destination, but a transit route to the EU countries. However, many of them also decide to stay and seek better life within Macedonian borders. Although this issue is one of the biggest threats for the region, it is not clear why the EU has not addressed it sufficiently by now. The capacities of the Western Balkan (WB) countries to deal with this issue are questionable as well.

Macedonia is lacking an independent insight into the issues and there has never been an analysis made by independent CSOs tackling the illegal migrations and the asylum seekers in the country.

Analytica have started a project on analyzing national policies and practices for dealing with illegal migration and asylum seekers. The project will be implemented until September 2013. The main objectives of the project are:

-          Assessment of the national solutions dealing with illegal migration and asylum and the capacities of the country to handle illegal migration;

-          Providing recommendations for improvement of the Government policies in the field of migration and asylum;

-          Raising awareness about challenges for dealing with illegal migration;

-          Analysis of the security risks for the country due to the increased number of illegal immigrants.

The project is funded by the Geneva Centre for Democratic Control of the Armed Forces from Switzerland (DCAF).
