IDM Policy Paper Series

The IDM Policy Paper Series (IDM PPS) regularly addresses current political issues with a focus on the Danube region, Central and Southeastern Europe. Renowned authors develop policy solutions (PS) that are aimed at decision-makers, experts, journalists and the interested public. The aim of these is to describe a problem and to point out concrete solutions with a maximum of 12,000 characters. Finally, further information can be provided for in-depth study (PPS). The editorial team selects the topics and determines the authors. Although the contents are edited for clarity, the policy solutions reflect only the opinion of the authors. The IDM PPS is available open-access and barrier-free.
