Closing the Gap between Formal and Informal Institutions in the Balkans

The project aims to explore the daily level of interaction between formal institutions, created by the EU integration processes, and informal already existing institutions in the Western Balkan countries. This will allow clarifying the role of these institutions, which, in turn, is the basis for developing and offering tools for the policy makers that contribute to the interaction between formal and inform al institutions.
