Organisation profile

What was CITSEE?

CITSEE was funded by an Advanced Investigator Award for basic research made to Professor Jo Shaw by the European Research Council running for five years until 31 December 2014. The Europeanisation of Citizenship in the Successor States of the Former Yugoslavia (CITSEE) was a study of the citizenship regimes of the seven successor states of the former Yugoslavia (Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia). CITSEE involved a large multi-national and multi-disciplinary group of researchers based at the University of Edinburgh, led by Jo Shaw (Salvesen Chair of European Institutions) and Igor Štiks (Senior Research Fellow). CITSEE’s researchers were not attempting to supply answers as to ‘best’ or ‘worst’ practices in relation to citizenship regimes, or to evaluate the impact of Europeanisation as negative or positive. But the evaluative studies that they  produced have not been of interest only to researchers, but they have also engaged non-governmental organisations and policy-makers in that region, in the EU institutions, and in other international institutions. It filled in many gaps in our current knowledge and it has therefore provided an enhanced evidence basis for policy development in the future.
