The Centre for Euro-Atlantic Integration and Democracy (CEID) is an independent, nonprofit, nongovernmental and nonpartisan think tank based in Budapest, Hungary. The Centre was founded in 2001 with the objective of promoting the Euro-Atlantic dialogue.
Since integration into both NATO and the EU has been successfully completed, CEID was re-launched in February 2014 with a broader focus based on two pillars: security and defense policy and foreign relations of Hungary. Furthermore, it focuses on regional cooperation among the V4 countries and in a broader context Central Europe. CEID reaches out to post-Soviet and Western Balkans countries to share their experience in NATO and EU accession.
As part of its work, the Centre analyzes EU and NATO policies and their effect on Hungary. To support foreign policy decision making and the public discourse in Hungary and the Central European region, CEID organizes a number of different projects, round table discussions, conferences and produces publications.
