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. These challenges involve considerably more than the traditional political-military agenda that dominated the previous century. Less visible and unconventional methods of conflict are coming to the fore, including sophisticated cyber attacks, and so-called “hybrid warfare” (which has governed Russia’s multi-pronged campaign against Ukraine).

PSSI has conducted and prepared numerous events, conference-sized gatherings and publications on a range of issues relevant to this new generation of transatlantic security ties and the current security environment (e.g energy and business security, the future mandate of NATO, threats to the security of the Middle East and Central and Eastern Europe, heightened tensions in the Asia-Pacific region etc.). This track record has helped the Institute to become even more focused and selective concerning how it will deploy our resources and long institutional policy-level experience. PSSI continues to provide transitional assistance in the area of security sector reform in Ukraine.

With its primary focus on organizing prestigious international conferences, roundtables, workshops and cooperative research initiatives, we seek to create unique regional venues to bring together high-level decision-makers, opinion and business leaders, and experts from Central and Eastern European countries that would, in many cases, not be exposed to one another under normal professional circumstances.

PSSI does not seek to replicate the kind of issue coverage accomplished by larger public policy institutions, but aims at concentrating on niche issues off the beaten path in the security portfolio, like space security, cyber security and economic and financial statecraft. Given its distinguished track record of over a dozen years, the Institute remains confident that it can deliver genuine educational value to its audiences, often concerning breaking events, as well as the global security policy community.
