Research and Evaluation

The identification of problems, the assessment of their criticism and the policy recommendation should rely on sustainable evidence. Issue or problem definition must be central for public policy formulation. NCSS exerts its influence through establishing the ‘received wisdom’ (what constitutes relevant and accepted knowledge). Albania is facing numerous challenges. The adverse consequences of the country's social and economic development are poverty, unemployment and inequalities. Albanian policymakers must contend with a particular set of institutional arrangements on what can be done to address the above mentioned issues, with the pressure of interest groups about what they would like to see done in a given issue, and a range of ideas (including research evidence) about how best to address those issues. 17 years of experience in conducting research and evaluations and working with different institutions and communities ensure that our participants are always treated with respect and that questions and solutions work as intended. We are pride of ourselves on staying abreast of and leveraging these advances, remaining true to the highest technical and ethical standards, and fully protecting data privacy for all information in our charge.
