ISPK is committed to furthering the security policy discourse in Germany and abroad by way of focused, interdisciplinary, policy-oriented research.

Complementing research, publications and teaching, members of the Institute advise decision-makers in government, academia, media and business. ISPK’s main research foci lie in German and European foreign and security policy, international security architecture, nonproliferation of nuclear weapons and disarmament, stabilisation of fragile states, maritime security, and asymmetric challenges such as transnational terrorism.
