The Casimir Pulaski Foundation is an independent, non-partisan think-tank specializing in foreign policy and international security.

The Pulaski Foundation provides analyses that describe and explain international developments, identify trends in international environment, and contain possible recommendations and solutions for government decision makers and private sector managers to implement.

Founded in 2004 and based in Warsaw, the Foundation concentrates its research on two subjects: transatlantic relations and Russia and the post-Soviet sphere. It focuses primarily on security, both in traditional and non-military dimensions, as well as political changes and economic trends that may have consequences for Poland and the European Union. The Casimir Pulaski Foundation is composed of over 60 experts from various fields. It publishes the Pulaski Policy Papers, the Pulaski Report, and the Pulaski Commentaries. The Foundation experts cooperate with media on a regular basis.

One of the leading projects in the field of international security is the annual Warsaw Security Forum, organized in partnership with the Polish and foreign partners and institutions, which is bringing together policymakers from European Union and NATO countries to discuss major security challenges.

Casimir Pulaski Foundation received an award “Think Tank Awards 2017” in category “Best EU International Affairs think tank”, awarded by Prospect magazine.

The Casimir Pulaski Foundation has a partnership status with the Council of Europe.
