Center introduced research activities as additional tool in advocacy process.
The first research was made after the experimental project of Personal Asssistance Service for 16 beneficiaries in Belgrade. The research was also conducted on the significant changes perceived even in this short period of time among the life quality of persons with disabilities, service beneficiaries.
Center continued to work in the second project Network of NGOs in Poverty Reduction Strategy Process. Center was especially engaged to work on the part of document related to the poverty of persons with disabilities.
International Labour Organisation (ILO) involve Center for Independent Living in its research study Policy Tools for Promoting Employment of Persons with Disabilities
During its most important project - Personal Assistants Service in Serbia, Center organised two researches. One research, done by Institute G 17, shows the cost effectiveness of this kind of support to persons with disabilitiesof – Cost of Independence This research was also published in the content of a Separate. Other research presents changes in quality of life at persons with disabilities, users of PAS project – Experiences of Independence. This research was made by CIL expert consultants and associates.
Through conducted and published researches, the Center has also contributed to the creation of the analyses and documentation from different areas of persons with disabilities which had not existed until that time.

Starting from the fact having information is powerful means in the work of any social group, the Center has begun and successfully continued the development of this segment on which we are very proud. Until recently, in our region, there was not much material on disability issue published. The contacts with different organizations, institutions and numerous individuals we have made after publishing certain publications, has convinced us that translating the foreign material as well as printing various reseaches and papers from our personal experiences is a worthy undertaking. The possibility that we have contributed to information exchange as well as to improvement of disability movement development in the country makes us happy.
