Global Center on Cooperative Security

The Global Center works with governments, international organizations, and civil society to develop and implement comprehensive and sustainable responses to complex international security challenges through collaborative policy research, context-sensitive programming, and capacity development. In collaboration with a global network of expert practitioners and partner organizations, the Global Center fosters stronger multilateral partnerships and convenes key stakeholders to support integrated and inclusive security policies across national, regional, and global levels.

The Global Center focuses on four thematic areas of programming and engagement:

Across these areas, the Global Center prioritizes partnerships with national and regional stakeholders and works to ensure respect for human rights and empower those affected by transnational violence and criminality to inform international action.

The Global Center also draws on the expertise of its distinguished International Advisory Council and works closely with partners and donors around the world, including governments; international, regional, and subregional organizations; civil society; and various research institutions and foundations. The Global Center is particularly grateful for the continued support of the Fourth Freedom Forum since its founding in 2004.
