Since its inception in early 2002, the Prague Security Studies Institute (PSSI) has endeavored to serve as a valuable resource in the field of security policy and studies. It is also dedicated to identifying and analyzing a broad range of security-related challenges facing the post-communist states and transatlantic community of nations.
Taking advantage of Prague’s central location and unique history, the Institute has not only become a training and academic hub for talented young Czech students and professionals, but those of the region as well. Its conferences, workshops and roundtables have been addressing topical, 21st century security issues for nearly a decade and have attracted highly respected and well-known participants and speakers from across the globe.
The Institute has also taken advantage of the insights and rich experiences of business-statesmen from the private sector who have not only given their valuable time but also new career opportunities for our graduating Security Scholars.
To advance its mission, PSSI has established four core programs – Security Scholars Program, Space Security Program, Economic and Financial Statecraft Program and Energy Security Program. These institutional pillars have permitted the Institute to:
As we go forward, we will continue to take full advantage of the extraordinary backgrounds and skill sets of our distinguished International Advisory Board and Executive Committee members as well as the innovative ideas and recommendations of our many generous supporters and donors. Although our mission is clear, PSSI prides itself in maintaining an open architecture that permits us to promptly address breaking developments in the global security environment and make the necessary programmatic adjustments to do so. We welcome and respect a wide spectrum of views and opinions in the area of security policy, while remaining committed to our underlying philosophy of peace through strength.
