The Centre for the Study of Global Governance at the London School of Economics is a leading international institution dedicated to research, analysis and dissemination about global governance. Based at the London School of Economics, the Centre aims to increase understanding and knowledge of global issues, to encourage interaction between academics, policy makers, journalists and activists, and to propose solutions. The Centre for the Study of Global Governance has been developing systematically the expertise on the Balkans since the commencement of its South East Europe Faculty Development Programme in 2002, focused on building teaching and research capacity in the Western Balkans in the field of politics, economics, history and law, in relation to the region’s EU accession process.

Accordingly, the Centre staff has been involved in various academic initiatives in the region, such as a three-year project on ‘Developing Curricula in European Studies and Transition and Reconstruction’ in Bosnia- Herzegovina under the Tempus scheme. This has resulted in the introduction of two Masters programmes in Sarajevo and Banja Luka and a number of undergraduate courses. Following the successful completion of a pilot European Regional Masters Programme in Democracy and Human Rights in South East Europe in 2000, the European Commission has approved a new three- year cycle of the project; the LSE co-ordinates ‘Economic, Social and Cultural Rights’ cluster of the masters programme based in Sarajevo, Bosnia- Herzegovina.
