The research topics to be submitted should be relevant to transitional themes while addressing and analysing specific issues under investigation from a social science perspective. Furthermore, the proposals must fit into the regional umbrella topic, “Political, Social and Economic Change in the Western Balkans”. This includes the following priority areas:
The RRPP provides funding to researchers from the region conducting relevant research projects. The call for proposals is managed by RRPP Management, hosted at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland.
On July the 8th, the Swiss Cooperation Office in Albania in cooperation with the University of Fribourg, organised a conference with presentations from 5 regional research projects from Albania which marked the end of the previous phase.
