We have gathered ample research experience and specialise mostly in qualitative research. We explore the situation of individuals and population groups that are unable to participate fully in society’s everyday life and examine various public policies and practical measures that are likely to affect their lives. We also analyse the public opinion and the political discourse as we are keen on bringing down the barriers that hinder development of a truly inclusive society. At the same time, our surveys give voice to marginalised population groups and communicate their needs to the powers that be.
The findings from our surveys are subsequently used to analyse public policies and formulate recommendations for policy-makers. Through releasing expert publications and media outputs, commenting on proposed or adopted legislation and taking part in various task forces we strive to advocate the measures that respect human rights and eliminate social disparities.
We are well aware that criticism alone is not enough, which is why most of our projects focus on developing cooperation with decision-makers in practical implementation of public policies. We cooperate with municipal authorities, central state administration bodies, schools and other public institutions, preparing educational activities, providing consultation and supplying inside information to them.
