Transparent research and accessible data: A trend to pay attention to

Tea Hadžiristić
2015

New trends in research and data transparency are evidence of the way that technology has influenced the academic world.  Namely, the latest topic on the minds of social scientists has been the so-called DA-RT initiative – short for Data Access and Research Transparency. DA-RT is an attempt to address shortfalls in social science research, including a lack of transparency, a lack of replicable research results, lax methodological tools, and the effects that these shortcomings have on the legitimacy of the discipline itself. Political scientist Andrew Moravcsik has been one of the most prominent advocates of the initiative, suggesting that new technologies necessitate social scientists to actively ensure transparency in their research. He suggests that research transparency is crucial to lending the discipline credibility with peers and the public, and that focusing on replicable results will lead to social science being taken more seriously.

Post-2015 EU accession of the Western Balkans: Is travelling more important than arriving?

Tea Hadžiristić
2015

Since Croatia’s accession to the European Union in 2013, the prospects of EU membership of the rest of the Balkans (the ‘Western Balkans’) have been unclear, and some may argue that the process has stalled. Indeed, the EU seems to be suffering from what is often called ‘enlargement fatigue’, with their enthusiasm for enlargement tempered by the economic crisis, worries of individual member states about migration and overburdening of the welfare state, and subpar experiences in previous accession rounds (such as the entry of Bulgaria and Romania before they were strictly ready and the evident problems in adhering to the EU acquis).
