PRAXIS Center for Policy Studies is an independent not-for-profit think tank based in Tallinn. Founded in 2000, the mission of PRAXIS is to improve and contribute to the policy-making process in Estonia by conducting independent research, providing strategic counsel to policy makers and fostering public debate.
The term “PRAXIS” originates from the social thought of the Ancient Greece and signifies a practical kind of knowledge that not only consists of expertise and capacity, but also involves the set-ting of right goals, to which the expertise is applied. Such a knowledge is important for all kinds of endeavors, but particularly for good governance.
PRAXIS aims to develop this kind of practical knowledge as well as to offer its know-how and expertise to identify and tackle key problems in the society, and provide practical recommendations to policy makers.
