The mission and the vision of the Institute

The formation of a new social paradigm for the Republic of Croatia is an attempt to establish a structure of long duration in a relation to Europe and the world. Croatia, as an inseparable part of the EU and the world, is also an actor of global social interaction and globalization as a process affecting the society in which we live.

The contents of the new social paradigm for the Republic of Croatia are public policies in the field of IT, artificial intelligence, robotics, energy, agriculture, sustainable development, security, circular economy, social and economic aspects of globalization. Contents of all public politics will be additionally developed by scientific research and disseminated through educational programs and conferences.

IEGS, as an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary think tank, connects experts from the theoretical and practical spheres with the aim of jointly rethinking the new social paradigm determined by globalization and the EU, as a macro-regional union, and especially through the prism of Croatia as its component.

The emphasis is on shaping the new social paradigm of the Republic of Croatia for the 21st century within the global risk society, and the sociological, political, and economic challenges. Special emphasis is placed on the challenges of how to live, function and survive in this geopolitical space.

The new social paradigm is based on the idea of ​​public policies (policy concept). The policy concept presupposes the formulation of public policies.

 

Proposals for new public policies will primarily stem from the conclusions reached by experts gathered at our 4 forums:

  1.     Mediterranean Agricultural Forum
  2.     ICT Forum and Society
  3.     International Energy Forum
  4.     Geopolitical Forum

New public policies will also be proposed for the areas of artificial intelligence, robotics, all aspects of sustainable energy and economic development, security, the circular economy and all social and economic aspects of globalization.
