Security Scholars Program

PSSI was the first public policy group in the Czech Republic – and one of the first in the region – to launch an intensive educational initiative to train future generations of national security-minded experts in the Czech Republic and the region.

Space Security Program

Space infrastructure is essential for the proper functioning of European and U.S. societies, economies, and security architectures.

Economic & Financial Statecraft Program

In this era of unprecedented global interdependence, international economic and financial (E&F) relations have become an integral part of every nation’s foreign policy.

Regional Security Program

In addition to its core programmes, PSSI aims to identify and analyze relevant foreign policy and security-related issues that will increasingly affect and influence the transatlantic security policy community.

Hostile Narratine Brief
Since Russia's invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, PSSI in cooperation with IRI's Beacon Project monitored narratives around topics of Ukrainian refugees, sanctions, energy security, and NATO in the CEE media environment and beyond. Together with local experts in Ukraine, Bulgaria, Slovakia, Romania, Czech Republic, Germany, Lithuania and Poland we analyzed over 23 million articles & posts to find actors disseminating content that has the potential to undermine support for Ukraine by exploiting socially contentious issues.
