What we do
ESI Capacity building has two objectives:
- To build local research capacity for empirical research and policy analysis. ESI policy analysts transfer research, analysis and presentation skills by working intensively with local analysts on joint reports and collaborating on joint outreach activities.
- To influence national debates on the direction of social and institutional change and to increase understanding of social trends in a given society among European policy makers, the media and the general public.
These skills can't be taught in a single seminar. It takes intense, joint collaboration over an extended period of time.
