Centre for European Perspective - CEP

CEP is a Slovenian governmental organisation operating since 2006 at the initiative of the Slovenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The mission of the Centre is enhancing European perspective by various activities in the field of democratisation, security and youth. In this manner it contributes to regional stability and prosperity through developing and strengthening friendly relations with beneficiary countries and in achieving visibility of Slovenian know-how in the region. It aims to recognize challenges in the region and efficiently respond to them by featuring country particularities and request. 

CEP is an official provider of international development assistance to South-East European countries in order to support their economic, social and political development. Its activities are conducted on a request basis submitted by the beneficiary country and tailor made to suit their specific requirements.
