What organisations say

Center for Studies in Political Ideas (CeSIP)
The Center for Studies in Political Ideas (CeSIP) is a non-profit organization which emerged from the initiative of a handful of MA and PhD students from within SNSPA Bucharest (National University of Political Studies and Public Administration). CeSIP encourages and coordinates the development of research projects – individual or collective – in the domain of social and political science, at the same time offering opportunities for publishing said projects in academic papers. The emphasis on critical thinking plays a key role here and represents a cornerstone of this association, with the purpose of helping students adjust their relationship with knowledge and professors. The transition from the communist regime towards democracy has not been successful in Romania, at least from a civil society point of view – our society isn’t comprised of responsible citizens willing to contribute to its well-being and proper functioning. The lack of democratic spirit reveals the profound non-participative culture we live in, which directly impacts the quality of government and elected officials. What CeSIP proposes to achieve is a contribution and support in this regard, providing incentive for students and the whole academic community to participate in the public affairs of Romanian society. In other words, our association aims to be a „bridge” between universities and society. http://cesip.eu/en/
