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 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 which is relevant to decision-makers, business leaders and all concerned citizens. Its ambition is to help people make sense of the world and and identify how the world might make more sense to people – through better policies. The Institute wants to make an 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 current challenges rising in the political realm. Activities within this think tank are devoted to research in different programme areas: Cyber Security Programme, Defence & Security Programme, Strategic Communication Programme, Energy Programme, Future of Europe Programme and European Neighbourhood Programme.
STRATEGIC COMMUNICATION PROGRAMME
STRATCOM is aims to strengthen the resilience of Central European societies to subversive efforts by undemocratic foreign actors and to defend the integrity of the information space. We provide data and research driven insight into the impact of information warfare and disinformation campaigns upon stability and safety of democratic societies in Central and Eastern Europe. Regional public opinion polls, expert surveys and our own analysis enabled us to develop evidence based policy recommendations and provide unique insight into developments affecting this region. We have developed several innovative tools and approaches increasing resilience of the most vulnerable target groups towards disinformation campaigns and our activities directly contributed to the development of national policies concerning strategic communication.
