The Eastern Europe Studies Centre (EESC) is an independent, non-profit think-tank operating in Vilnius since 2006, focusing on the analysis of international policy processes and Lithuania’s role in them. The EESC brings together experts in various fields, publishes analytical material, organises events, and carries out international and national projects. The Centre’s founders are the Government of the Republic of Lithuania and Vilnius University.
Eastern Europe Studies Centre (EESC)
Values and Principles
The EESC collaborates with state institutions and non-governmental organizations in Lithuania and abroad, presents proposals and presents examples of good practice, produces publications, analytical and academic texts. We strive to maximise the applied value of RESC research activities and translate them into practical solutions.
In cooperation with civil society, the public and private sectors, we seek dialogue and discussion on relevant events in our region and around the world. The EESC organizes dozens of public events every year on various topics that attract participants from Lithuania and abroad. We are convinced that the European Union’s motto “United in diversity” is no empty promise. It is namely through dialogue between various partners that we can achieve the best results.
We are one of the longest functioning and internationally recognised Lithuanian analytical centres. Our centre’s team is regularly seen in local and foreign media, commenting on international policy processes, phenomena and events. You can find the views of our analysts in publications and interviews published by CNN, Die Welt, the BBC and elsewhere.
