GLOBSEC is an independent, non-partisan, non-governmental organisation committed to enhancing security, prosperity and sustainability in Europe and throughout the world. As globalisation deepens, the international system is becoming less predictable and more unstable. The post-cold war environment is fading away, the traditional institutional framework is disintegrating, and new non-state actors are on the rise. Technological innovation is quickly disrupting the old dogmas of economies, societies and political order.
The world is in turmoil. GLOBSEC can help navigate their uncharted waters.
GLOBSEC provides a superior understanding of global trends and their consequences for our society, economy, security and the international community. We generate modern ideas and solutions for a more stable, more prosperous and more sustainable world, by:

  • RESEARCH – delivering intellectual leadership through world-class research and political insight, produced by our GLOBSEC Policy Institute
  • DISCUSSION – providing a globally respected platform for political debate, which brings together political leaders, entrepreneurs, journalists and scholars to shape, cultivate and precipitate international agenda and global decision-making.
  • ACTION – engaging esteemed policy-makers and senior leaders from different sectors in our policy initiatives and driving our efforts into specific recommendations and action points.

GLOBSEC believes that in an increasingly complex world, we need cross-sectoral collaboration more than ever before. For this purpose, GLOBSEC stimulates public-private dialogue and brings together leaders from multiple sectors to build agendas for the future.
With global ambitions in mind and building on its Central European legacy, GLOBSEC proposes the international agenda which is critical for Europe. GLOBSEC leads in the European spirit of international cooperation and hopes to foster stability and freedom around the world.
