ISSP's surveys and national and regional seminars have played a pivotal role in motivating decision makers to address critical issues and define priorities in our region and beyond.
Founded in 1998 by Professor Veselin Vukotić, the Institute of Strategic Studies and
Prognoses (ISSP) envisions an open market society characterized by a high level of economic,
political, and individual freedom. As the first independent economic think tank in Montenegro,
ISSP boasts two decades of experience in conducting high-quality research and analysis.
It's also a scientifically accredited research institution recognized by the
Montenegrin Ministry of Science.
ISSP is renowned not only in Montenegro but also in the wider region, recognized as a pioneering institution for setting the agenda in advocating reform and facilitating the communication of economic and social change through data, analysis, and publications. Our work spans a multitude of areas, including economic growth and development, labor market and social policy, business environment and digitalization, demographics, migration, gender, education, and skills.
Our research methods, which encompass surveys, in-depth analysis, policy analysis, and economic modeling, provide a platform for constructive debate. This enables government entities and the business community to make well-informed decisions grounded in unbiased, thoroughly researched data. Furthermore, ISSP's surveys and national and regional seminars have played a pivotal role in motivating decision makers to address critical issues and define priorities in our region and beyond.
