About SITE

SITE is an independent research institute at the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) and was set up in 1989 to focus on economic developments in the Soviet Union but has since then evolved to cover a wider range of countries and topics that are relevant for (former) transition countries.

We serve as a bridge between the academic community and policy makers, covering a wide range of research areas including transition economics, gender, development, energy, corruption and more. To promote communication and the sharing of ideas we regularly organize policy-oriented conferences and seminars.
