The Center for Policy Studies (CPS) is a university research center that combines teaching, research and occasionally acting as a university-based think tank managing topical platforms, social policy monitoring, and providing academic research support to policy innovations. CPS activities draw on its existing multi-disciplinary resources from law, economics, political science and sociology but also from its connections with open society driven partners. CPS pursues interdisciplinary research projects in cooperation with both CEU and external partners. Its research is comparative, methodologically diverse and policy oriented, and provides critical perspectives on the formulation, production and implementation of public policy. CPS research is especially focused on cross cutting themes such as equality and social justice, territorial development and social cohesion, governance and policy actors. Main fields of CPS current research agenda:

  • Equality and Social Justice
