The Geneva Centre for Security Policy is recognised as one of the world’s leading centres for executive education, policy analysis and dialogue in international security, peace and foreign policy. Established by the Swiss Confederation in 1995, it is located in the heart of international Geneva, as part of the Maison de la paix or ‘House of Peace.’
As geopolitical issues become increasingly complex and multi-layered, the world faces unprecedented instability. Navigating complexity and uncertainty across multiple boundaries requires courageous leadership, resilience, foresight and versatility, as well as creative and innovative approaches. The GCSP equips government officials, diplomats, armed forces personnel, business executives and civil society leaders with the knowledge, skills and network they need to thrive and lead with impact in this ever-changing security landscape.
Our course participants gain a unique learning experience involving world-class experts, renowned practitioners and highly experienced peers from across the world. Together, they can leverage the powers of diversity and inclusiveness; find patterns as well as opportunities in the seeming chaos, with the aim of creating a safer world.
Reaching 165+ nations and 6,500+ alumni, the GCSP’s highly interactive and participatory environment encourages knowledge co-creation to support innovation in addressing the most pressing peace and security challenges. A comprehensive entrepreneurial approach fosters the development of new ideas and fresh concepts to create lasting value and impact.
Through the ‘GCSP way’ we educate, facilitate, analyse and inspire by delivering 80 courses, 120 events, 40 publications and 5 different types of fellowship programmes per year.
The GCSP focuses its activities on 19 key thematic clusters:
- crisis management, diplomatic tradecraft, gender and inclusive security, leadership, the creative edge, peace operations and peacebuilding
- arms proliferation, cybersecurity, human security, global risk and resilience, security and law, strategic anticipation, terrorism and organised crime
- defence and diplomacy, effective governance, regional challenges
- outer space security, neurophilosophy, and transformative technologies
