Centre for Public Policy and Economic Analysis (CEA) is Croatian public policy think tank founded in 2010 and based in Zagreb which advocates more individual liberty, free market, limited government, strong national security and increased competitiveness for Croatia and the European Union. CEA strongly supports the EU-NATO institutions and transatlantic partnership as guarantors of liberal democracy and freedom from repressive authoritarian governments.

In orde to advocate these values, CEA is gathering information and providing policy analysis regarding economic policy, public administration, national security and geopolitics, with multidisciplinary approach of its political scientists (policy analysts and public management experts), (macro)economists, lawyers and other experts. CEA also provides policy analysis for portals Talas, Atlas Network4 LIBERTY.eu, Ekonomski Lab (and provided analysis for ex-business portals Banka.hr Prvi plan). For example, portal 4 Liberty.eu has published CEA article “Populist Conspiracy Narratives and Other Forms of Disinformation in Croatia“.

CEA’s strategic projects are Croatia 2025 and Think Tank Detektor. Croatia 2025 provides concrete and measurable public management and economic reform solutions for more competitive Croatia, while Think Tank Detektor aims to detect open source disinformation which represent a growing geopolitical security risk for liberal democracy in Croatia and within the whole EU-NATO transatlantic framework. CEA’s first project Entrepreneurial Initiative was focused on publishing its first book on entrepreneurship friendly policies and translating Atlas Network’s books Morality of Capitalism & After the Welfare State. CEA organized several policy round tables and lectures on policy topics which include saving public money, quality in public administration, government’s role in the economy, bureaucratic obstacles to investment climate, Eurozone crisis and flexicurity model.

With the aim to advocate and defend freedom, CEA’s international think tank network includes Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, European ValuesFraser Institute, Libertarian Club, Texas Public Policy Foundation, Atlas Economic Research FoundationLithuanian Free Market Institute, Timbro, Hayek Institute and Austrian Economics Center.
