The Center for International Relations and Sustainable Development (CIRSD) is a public policy think-tank registered in Belgrade and New York. Its mission is to provide high-quality, independent analysis and offer innovative, practical recommendations with the aim of • strengthening peaceful cooperation between States and increasing responsiveness to changing global circumstances; encouraging a more inclusive and equitable international system; advocating sustainable development as the foundation of the UN post-2015 agenda. CIRSD is committed to help deepen the understanding of economic, social, environmental, and foreign and security policy choices of different States and organizations.


Whether it ranged from in-office discussions about the politics of the day, to editing and fact-checking the articles of distinguished contributors from all over the world, it is without question that my time at CIRSD was fulfilling. Learning about the process of publishing a magazine, including the almost never-ending cycle of editing and re-editing texts, has been an eye-opening experience. It surely has increased my personal admiration for the editors and the CIRSD staff on a whole.

Apart from being introduced to writing, editing, and reviewing, I often provided administrative support, including word processing and data entry. I enjoyed every task I was given. This is in part because I felt appreciated by people at the Center for every little thing I did. Even though I found it slightly funny, it did not take long for me to recognize that the encouragement and support was exactly what I needed on my first real step into a professional world. Finally, the experience at CIRSD strengthened my desire to work for a think tank and, more importantly, showed me how crucial it is to work in a healthy and positive environment. Now that I am gone, I wish the experience had lasted a while longer. I remain hopeful, however, that once I start working I will find my place in an organization like CIRSD.
