Its mission is to influence the future by generating new ideas and solutions for a better and safer world.

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 which are critical for Europe. GLOBSEC acts in the spirit of European values and international cooperation.
