About GLOBSEC Policy Institute

GLOBSEC Policy Institute is a think tank of the GLOBSEC organisation that is building upon and broadening the previous work done by the Central European Policy Institute (CEPI) from 2012 to 2016. The institute is involved in conducting research, generating policy ideas, and stimulating action in four programme areas: Defence & Security; Energy; Future of Europe; and European Neighbourhood. All the programmes have their own long term strategy, research and action-oriented plans, and develop initiatives targeted toward shaping high-level policy, which are presented at our top events such as GLOBSEC Forum, TATRA Summit, and Chateau Bela. The research and action plans are developed in close coordination with our network of top experts and current and former practitioners/decision-makers, including in particular the International Advisory Board of GLOBSEC, and partner organisations. The plans will be incorporated within various project managed by GLOBSEC Policy Institute’s support team.
