Roundtable on Public Policy Making in Western Balkans chaired by Dr Margo Thomas (World Bank) and Dr Vesna Bojicic-Dzelilovic (London School of Economics and Political Science)

Discussion in reflection of the new book to be launched by Springer – Holand. In the academic and policy literature on Western Balkans the coverage of public policy making, including the actors, institutions and various activities is almost non-existent. This volume aims to fill that gap and bring valuable insights into the complex process of policy making and its impact on the reform outcomes in the region.

Competitiveness of Companies in Serbia

Following the International Conference “The Global Economic Crisis and the Future of European Integration”, on 19th October, the one-day long scientific event organized jointly by the Serbian Scientific Society of Economists, the Faculty of Economics at the University of Belgrade and the Faculty of Economics University of Niš, will be held: Competitiveness of Companies in Serbia.

The purpose of the event is to provide space and time for communication, discussion and idea exchange between researchers, industry leaders and students of economics and management on the topic concerning factors, modes, sources and competitiveness level of Serbian enterprises. It is clear that without the enhancement of enterprises’ competitiveness in Serbia there will be neither the raising of the competitiveness level in the Serbian economy as a whole nor the enhancement of the position of our economy within European and world setting.
