About Us

THE PRAGUE SECURITY STUDIES INSTITUTE (PSSI) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization established in early 2002 to advance the building of just, secure, democratic, free market societies in the Czech Republic and other post-communist states. PSSI’s mission is to build an ever-growing number of informed and security-minded policy practitioners dedicated to the development and protection of democratic values and institutions. PSSI offers programs that help meet the critical requirements associated with equipping new generations of young leaders to manage the complex, security-related challenges of the 21st century.

To fulfill its mission, PSSI conducts a broad range of activities under its Security Scholars Program, Space Security Program, Economic & Financial Threat Program and Energy Security Program. PSSI aims to identify and analyze geopolitical flashpoints and emerging threats regionally and globally and to propose sound and achievable policy options to deter and defeat hybrid warfare strategies and other forms of external aggression as well as security-relevant internal governance abuses. In short, PSSI is in the business of securing human liberties and freedom.
