About Us

Established in 2011, ZIP Institute is an independent, nonpartisan, public policy organization geared towards producing and disseminating high-quality, objective and comprehensive ideas and analyses central to the democratization and EU Integration of Macedonia. ZIP Institute gives voice to the democratization process in the country and the region of South Eastern Europe as a whole, and spotlights its importance in tackling the most prevalent issues facing our society with field action, including in particular training and community development actions.

ZIP Institute’s core focus lies in connecting research and analysis of local issues with field action: its activity combines the provision of evidence-based policy research with trans-formative field action. ZIP specializes in two key areas of intervention: introducing new ways of informal education primarily among young people; and public administration and local governance research.
