The Warsaw Security Forum 2016 proudly announces institutional partners: The Atlantic Council, Carnegie Europe, Centre for International Relations (CIR) and European Academy of Diplomacy (EAD).

With a vision of ‘Working Together to Secure the Future. Renewing the Atlantic Community for Global Challenges’, The Atlantic Council promotes constructive leadership and engagement in international affairs based on the Atlantic Community’s central role in meeting global challenges. The Council provides an essential forum for navigating the dramatic economic and political changes defining the twenty-first century by informing and galvanizing its uniquely influential network of global leaders. Through the papers we write, the ideas we generate, and the communities we build, the Council shapes policy choices and strategies to create a more secure and prosperous world.

Carnegie Europe was founded in 2007 and has become the go-to source for European foreign policy analysis in Brussels on topics ranging from Turkey to the Middle East and the Eastern neighborhood to security and defence. Carnegie Europe’s strong team of scholars provides unparalleled depth of analysis and thoughtful, carefully crafted policy recommendations on the strategic issues facing the European Union and its member states.

The Centre for International Relations Foundation is an independent, non-governmental think tank which deals with international policy issues, as well as Polish foreign and European policy. The main goals of CIR are to deepen Polish decision-makers’ knowledge of the EU and the world, to popularize knowledge about Poland among opinion-leading circles abroad and to analyze international situation. CIR has become an influential forum for foreign policy analysis and debate, involving leading politicians, diplomats, civil servants, local government officials, businessmen, journalists, students and representatives of other NGOs.  The Centre’s activities to date have emphasized issues relating to NATO and international security, the different aspects of European integration as well as the position of Poland in Europe, transatlantic relations, a broadly defined Eastern policy, migration, climate and energy, as well as the bilateral and multilateral elements of Polish foreign policy.

With a vision of empowering a new generation of international leaders The European Academy of Diplomacy (EAD) is the first non-governmental, non-for-profit diplomatic academy in Europe, with a mission of shaping, sharpening and inspiring a new generation of enlightened international leaders. Renowned for its teaching methods, international faculty and distinguished speakers, the EAD prepares diplomats, civil servants, political and social leaders, as well as representatives of businesses, academia and the non-governmental sector for the challenges of a globalizing and ever changing world. The academy derives its principles and values from the country’s experience of a successful economic and political transition. It also draws inspiration from Poland’s value-oriented foreign policy, which endorses joint-responsibility for EU’s neighborhood and active engagement in the support for democracy and prosperity around the world.
