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 top conferences on global security in the world. GLOBSEC also organises the annual GLOBSEC TATRA SUMMIT, a conference that provides the ground for fruitful expert and political discussions on the future of Europe.
Committed to support young talents, 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 dealing with foreign policy and 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 organization it focuses on research which is relevant to decision-makers, business leaders and all the concerned citizens. Its ambition is to help people make sense of the world and the world makes sense to people – through better policies. The Institute wants to secure impact so that 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 some of the most current challenges. Activities within this think tank are devoted to research in five programmes: Cyber Security Programme, Defence & Security Programme, Energy Programme, Future of Europe Programme and European Neighbourhood Programme.
