Croatian public policy think tank Centre for Public Policy and Economic Analysis (CEA) strongly advocates individual liberty, free market reforms, EU & NATO enlargement, as well as transatlantic and global security alliance of democratic countries. Accordingly, CEA stands for the new global order based on freedom and democracy, which will provide institutional support for security, free market reforms and enlightened open societies.
Mission for freedom and quality
We see a hidden potential of each individual to work on self improvement. By working on our freedom and quality, we can make ourselves better, and contribute our communities and the whole world. CEA’s mission is to be among frontrunners in discovering the light of freedom and designing high quality solutions.
Focus on policy analysis and research
In order to advocate fact based policies, CEA is gathering information to design policy analysis and research in the areas of economic policy, public management, global security and geopolitics. CEA supports multidisciplinary approach of its political scientists (policy analysts and public management experts), (macro)economists, lawyers, sociologists and other (potential) experts. Moreover, CEA provides policy analysis for portals Ekonomski Lab, Pametni gradovi, Talas.hr, 4 Liberty.eu, Atlas Network, and ex-Banka.hr.
CEA’s strategic projects are Croatia 2025 and Detektor. Croatia 2025 provides concrete and measurable public management and economic reform solutions for more competitive Croatia, while Detektor provides open-source intelligence of populist disinformation that represent a growing geopolitical security risk for liberal democracy in Croatia and the EU & NATO led transatlantic institutions, as well as for the whole global community of democracies.
In particular, CEA is working on new research concerning the geopolitical risks of disinformation for the transatlantic (EU & NATO) institutions, while its previous analysis includes
