Security studies and other research providing input to diplomacy

The European Union Institute for Security Studies (EUISS) is the Union’s Agency analysing foreign, security and defence policy issues. Its core mission is to assist the EU and its member states in the implementation of the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP), including the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) as well as other external action of the Union. The Institute’s activities focus on policy-oriented analysis through its publications or events. The EUISS flagship publication is its Chaillot Paper series. Other research products include briefs and periodic publications such as a Yearbook of European Security. The Institute’s events serve to enhance the Union’s analytical capacity and facilitate the shaping of common approaches. They bring together EU officials, national experts, academics, decision-makers, media and civil society representatives from the EU member states, as well as the rest of the world.

The International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) helps the world understand and address global security challenges. Experts give accurate, objective, strategic insight into the biggest issues – from terrorism and shifting East-West relations to cyberwarfare and nuclear non-proliferation. For more than 50 years their timely facts and analysis have helped politicians, diplomats, analysts, business leaders, academics, journalists and the public navigate a changing world. They share their knowledge and perspectives through publications, research projects and events around the globe. These include conferences where defence and foreign ministers, security experts and others discuss and shape international security policy.
