Institute for Social and Economic Analyses (ISEA) was created in 2002 as a think-tank focusing on providing expert support to key reforms. ISEA is a voluntary, independent, non-profit association of citizens, founded according to the act No. 83/1990 Col. on civil associations, as amended.
ISEA is one of the leading and politically independent think-tanks in the Czech Republic. Its main goal is to serve as a beacon to state institutions and civic society, supplying qualified and unbiased analyses of various social phenomena and bridging academic research and key public policy domains. It is dedicated to both basic and applied research and in fostering public debate on the fundamental questions facing Czech society, particularly in education, human resources, and competitiveness.
