Our team

The foundation of teamwork lies in establishing trust. Individually, our capabilities may be limited, but when we join forces, we can achieve remarkable things. At our institution, we have assembled a group of proficient policy analysts, each with a background in political science, sociology, psychology, media studies and economics. Our aim is to serve the public, and our team at the Bratislava Policy Institute brings together diverse expertise. With extensive experience in research and a proficiency in working with both quantitative and qualitative data, we have successfully conducted numerous studies. We have collaborated with esteemed social research organizations such as the Focus agency, AKO agency, GFK agency, and Markant agency.
