We would like to welcome you to the Balkan Institute (BI) website. BI is a not-for-profit organization engaged in regional peace-building, post-conflict transformation, and development. The Institute conducts research, sponsors conferences, offers seminars, training and educational programs, and facilitates the creation and maintenance of economic, professional, and scholarly networks across Southeast Europe. With programs involving cultural, ethnic, and religious toleration, diplomacy, entrepreneurship, gender equality, security, and sustainable development, Balkan Institute seeks to address the timeless regional issues of war and peace within the rapidly transforming crosscurrents of globalization.
The BI team believes in the untapped potential of 21st century networks of academic thought and social entrepreneurship. We hope that you will accompany us on this journey through the Balkan’s rich past and promising future.
