SITE is an independent research institute at the Stockholm School of Economics. Established in 1989, SITE has become a leading research and policy centre on economic development in low and middle income countries, with a particular emphasis on transition in the former Soviet Union and Central and Eastern Europe. Beyond research we have a strong policy component, serving as a bridge between the academic community and policy makers and we are also engaged in institutional development of local research capacity in the transition countries. As part of that we are members of the FREE network, a network of research institutions in Eastern Europe.
