The new International Journal of Balkan Policy Research (IJBPR) is a double-blinded peer-reviewed Journal published by Universum University College in Kosovo with the financial support of the US Embassy in Kosovo and the US State Department.
It is edited by an International Editorial Board (please see below) which consists of prominent Academics, Scholars and Practitioners from the field and led by the Editor-in-Chief Dr. Adrian Treacher from the University of Sussex in the UK.
IJBPR is a gateway to key policy research on the Western Balkan region and individual countries. Of interest to policy-makers, scholars, and readers of Western Balkan affairs, it aims to address theoretically-informed and empirically-tested economic, legal and political issues which directly shape policy and attitudes in the region.
The review process ensures that the academic quality of the published articles is approved by experienced scholars/practitioners from the relevant field.
