Global Security

 

GLOBAL SECURITYThe Global Security (GS) Program is home to a number of initiatives that address priority security challenges facing the United States, Europe, and Eurasia.  Our programmatic initiatives foster innovation and cooperation that forms a long-lasting foundation for a new 21st Century security agenda, maximizes the potential for prosperity, and spreads free market-democratic values.  High-level working groups – whose memberships are comprised of private sector leaders and public officials, including parliamentarians, experts and representatives of relevant international bodies – help to promote a truly global security dialogue on the most pressing 21st century security challenges, from international terrorism to the spread of infectious disease.

The EastWest Institute’s Worldwide Security Initiative is designed to help global leaders in the private and public sectors craft and implement policies that will protect citizens, while at the same time promote global economic activity and growth, and safeguard civil liberties.  Working together with national governments, key international organizations such as the OECD, Financial Action Task Force, the European Commission, the World Bank, the International Chamber of Commerce, the World Customs Organization, as well as with major corporations such as Boeing and Entrust, EWI Worldwide Domestic Security Initiative is not only aimed at bridging the gap between globalization and domestic security, but also at creating a powerful platform inside a network of key international institutions that will give our proposed solutions a realistic chance of success.

The East West Institute’s NEAR Forum is designed to create a sustainable platform of cooperation of policy makers, policy experts and thought leaders from Europe, America and Russia. Its mission is to create a community of trust and understanding. Its major challenge is to mainstream the belief that if Russia, the U.S. and the EU work constructively together on issues of mutual interest, long term international peace, security and stability can be ensured. The NEAR Forum’s conceptual framework runs on four tracks: creation of basic premises that will facilitate the building of a community of trust, working together in fragile regions, reassessing hard security threats and cooperation of socio-economic issues.  To this extend we organise special targetted policy meetings, publish policy briefs and working papers and work on a daily basis with policy makers.
