The Central European University (CEU) is an internationally recognised, non-state institution of post-graduate education in social sciences and humanities accredited in the United States and Hungary, and obtaining Austrian accreditation is in the process.

The Center for Policy Studies (CPS) was established in 2000 to advance teaching of public policy in the CEE and CIS region and, secondly, to promote greater use of social science research in policy making. CPS served as the institutional home of the initial master program in policy studies at CEU and has become a university research center that combines teaching, research and occasionally acting as a university-based think tank managing topical platforms, social policy monitoring, and providing academic research support to policy innovations. CPS research is especially focused on cross cutting themes such as equality and social justice, territorial development and social cohesion, governance and policy actors.
