East West Bridge is an international, independent, scientific and research community. They are working in close cooperation with other regional and governmental institutes and think-tanks aiming to adopt guidelines for sustainable individual, society and state development. It was established in 2009 by a group of Serbian experts to serve both the domestic and international audiences and it steadily grew into an internationally recognized movement for sustainable and positive social change around the world. The original “Founding Fathers” Serbian group was soon joined by experts and enthusiasts from world-over, making EWB a truly international organization.
Some of its primary tasks is to assist to develop and then to implement necessary reforms that pave Serbia’s and other countries’ arduous road towards the EU membership; promote an all-encompassing, open and frank dialogue on all burning issues hampering the this and any other region’s development; help boost the economies, standard of living, education, welfare and health-care; speed up the overall rapprochement in the region and the consolidation of binding political, economic, cultural and other ties among SEE and other countries. In fostering cooperation or rapprochement among countries, EWB’s primary idea is to build up on issues that are common or undisputable and leave the differences for a later date when relations development prompted trust-building has borne fruit.
EWB's purpose is to educate, enlighten and advise, to pinpoint important problems in societies and offer solutions.
