International Journal of Balkan Policy Research‏


It is our great pleasure to invite you to submit

papers for the new International Journal of Balkan Policy Research (IJBPR).
IJBPR is a double-blinded peer-reviewed Journal
published by Universum
University College
in Kosovo with the financial support of the US Embassy in Kosovo and the US State
Department.
It is edited by an International Editorial Board
(please see below) which consists of prominent
Academics, Scholars and Practitioners from the field and led by the
Editor-in-Chief Dr. Adrian Treacher from the University
of Sussex in the UK.
IJBPR is a gateway to key
policy research on the Western Balkan region and individual countries. Of
interest to policy-makers, scholars, and readers of Western Balkan affairs, it
aims to address theoretically-informed and empirically-tested economic, legal
and political issues which directly shape policy and attitudes in the region.
The review process ensures
that the academic quality of the published articles is approved by experienced
scholars/practitioners from the relevant field.

comprehensive research and policy options in the Western Balkans, IJBPR invites scholars, researchers, public policy practitioners, and
