About us

The Kosovar Stability Initiative (IKS) is an independent, not-for-profit think tank focusing on empirical research and analysis of socio-economic developments in Kosovo. Founded in 2004, IKS offers innovative and policy-relevant research with the aim of initiating debates on issues of importance for Kosovo's future. We believe that evidence-based public debates stand at the core of democratic decision making.

Since summer 2004, IKS has expanded its team to eight full-time analysts and researchers, with a growing network of part-time researchers and associates. The work of IKS is also supported by an Advisory Board including Kosovar and international analysts and practitioners. Since its inception IKS work has focused on issues of governance, economic development, urban planning, corruption in post-war reconstruction, education, Kosovo's image problem and environmental issues. IKS is also part of ESI-inspired network of think-tanks across South East Europe. You can find here IKS Statute.
