Public Policy Research Center (CENTER) is a team of innovative researchers and digital enthusiasts deliberating on the future of work in Serbia, as well as inclusive security and the creation of sustainable partnerships focused on social change. The CENTER was founded in year 2010 as an independent think tank aiming to contribute to the development of a sustainable, prosperous and just society in which the opinions and concerns of all citizens are equally heard and appreciated.

The CENTER strongly believes that the future of work should be addressed immediately if Serbia desires to keep a high quality of employment legacies in place. The future transformation will depend on today’s responses of policy-makers, business leaders, and workers in Serbia.


The second national conference “The Future of Work – Visions in Conflict” (FOW2019) discussed a range of prospects for the future of Serbia in the light of international organisations’ opposing views of government and corporate accountability for the welfare of workers in the emerging knowledge-based economy.

FOW2019 debated the following questions: what policies are needed to promote the development of the new economy in Serbia whilst ensuring dignified work? What are the likely outcomes if choosing the wrong path?
