wiiw Balkan Observatory website relaunch

Dear friends of the wiiw Balkan Observatory,

The website has been relaunched. The site has now a modern design and is also more user-friendly. A number of new features has been introduced as well. The most important one is certainly the introduction of the The wiiw Balkan Observatory Working Papers series that offers a wide choice of some of the best papers written on Southeast European economies over the past 13 years. We hope that the new website will continue to be a useful tool for the SEE research community.

Best wishes,

Your wiiw team
