Belgrade Centre for Security Policy

As well as being one of the leading independent think-tanks in the Western Balkans, BCSP has considerable experience conducting research on gender and security governance, including in relation to peacebuilding. This enables them to make significant contributions to WP4, 5 and 6. Moreover, the Centre has good collaborative research relationships with other Western Balkan countries which are helping to expand the reach of EU-CIVCAP in the region.
