The mission of the GAP Institute for Advanced Studies is to bring together professional researchers to address Kosovo’s pressing economic, political, and social challenges. GAP aims to bridge the gap between the government and the people and to serve as a bridge between problems and solutions. In the five years since its founding in 2007, GAP has been directly involved in many governmental working groups for drafting public policies. Also, GAP published over a hundred publications, which are among the most cited documents by local media outlets, and its findings have been cited by international media and by scholars who focus on public policies. The organization has provided work space for a large number of professionals from different fields.
