The Lord Byron Foundation for Balkan Studies was co-founded in 1994 by the late Alfred Sherman and Serge Trifkovic as 'a non-partisan research center devoted to studying the Balkan Peninsula in all its aspects'. [1] [2] Sherman was a journalist and neoliberal activist best known for co-founding the Centre for Policy Studies with Margaret Thatcher and Keith Joseph.

The foundation 'is named after a great Western poet who gave his life in the fight to free Balkan Christians from Islamic rule'.[1]

The foundation's research and activities are purportedly 'designed to correct the current trend of public commentary, which tends, systematically, not to understand events but to construct a version of Southeast European rivalries that fits daily political requirements'.[1]
