The International Centre for Black Sea Studies (ICBSS) was founded in 1998 as a not-for-profit
organisation under Greek law. It has since fulfilled a dual function: on the one hand, it is an
independent research and training institution focusing on the Black Sea region. on the other
hand, it is a related body of the organisation of the Black Sea economic Cooperation (BSeC) and
in this capacity serves as its acknowledged think-tank. Thus the ICBSS is a uniquely positioned
independent expert on the Black Sea area and its regional cooperation dynamics.
The ICBSS Policy Briefs are policy oriented essays on topical issues pertaining to the Black Sea Region.
