GLOBSEC is a global think-tank based in Bratislava committed to enhancing security, prosperity and sustainability in Europe and throughout the world. Its mission is to influence the future by generating new ideas and solutions for a better and safer world. We believe we can change the world by putting together the right stakeholders at the right time for a free exchange of ideas.

The international environment is becoming less predictable and more complex. Technological innovation is quickly disrupting the old frameworks of economies, societies and political order. GLOBSEC helps to provide a better understanding of global trends and their consequences for society, economy and security. We generate new ideas and solutions for a more stable, prosperous and sustainable world, by:

  • Conducting world-class research and political insight into major threats and risks to our society.
  • Driving change by engaging esteemed policy-makers and senior leaders from different sectors in our policy initiatives.
  • Putting together leaders and stakeholders from multiple sectors at the right time in one place.

In an interconnected world, GLOBSEC stimulates public-private dialogue to shape agendas for the future.  With global ambitions in mind and building on its Central European legacy, GLOBSEC seeks to contribute to agendas that are critical for Europe. GLOBSEC acts in the spirit of European values and international cooperation.

GLOBSEC is an independent, non-partisan, non-governmental organisation that builds on the successful work done by the Slovak Atlantic Commission (est. 1993). Its main goal is to shape the global debate through conducting research activities and connecting key experts on foreign and security policy.

To this goal contributes the annual GLOBSEC Bratislava Forum, one of the leading conferences on global security in the world. GLOBSEC also organises the annual GLOBSEC Tatra Summit, a conference that provides the opportunity for experts to have fruitful political discussions on the future of Europe.

Committed to supporting young talents in the field, GLOBSEC Academy Centre was established to identify exceptional young individuals and aims to educate them to become excellent analysts of tomorrow.

The GLOBSEC Policy Institute is a policy-oriented think-tank analysing foreign policy and the international environment. It builds upon the experiences of the Central European Policy Institute that existed until 2015. While being an integral part of the GLOBSEC organisation, it focuses on research that is relevant to decision-makers, business leaders and all concerned citizens. Its ambition is to help people make sense of the world and identify how the world might make more sense to people – through better policies. The Institute wants to make an impact so that the values of the GLOBSEC organisation – liberal and democratic order in the transatlantic world – are deeply embedded in the agenda of governments.

Research fellows from GLOBSEC Policy Institute publish regular analyses, policy papers and publications responding to current challenges rising in the political realm. Activities within this think tank are devoted to research in 3 programme areas: Economic Growth & Sustainability Programme, Future of Security Programme, Technology & Society Programme; and 2 cross-cutting centres: Centre for Democracy & Resilience and Centre for Global Europe.
