Their goal is to "conduct non-partisan research, covering a wide variety of issues such as regional conflicts and security; oil and politics; state and democracy building; foreign and domestic policies".

The organisation says it supports Azerbaijan's 'integration into the European and Euro-Atlantic structures... Our vision is an independent democratic Azerbaijan, which is a member of EU.'[1]
