Founded in 2005, the Casimir Pulaski Foundation is an non-profit, non-partisan Polish-think tank conducting research on different aspects of European and transatlantic security, with a special focus on Central and Eastern Europe.
The Foundation brings together dozens of international experts in various fields (foreign policy, defence, energy, democratic resilience) and publishes analysis describing and explaining international events, identifying trends in the European and Transatlantic security environment and recommending solutions for government decision-makers and the private sector.
The Casimir Pulaski Foundation is also the initiator and main organizer of the annual Warsaw Security Forum conference, which annually gathers over 1500 stakeholders from more than 60 countries in order to elaborate shared responses to common transatlantic security challenges.
Each year the Foundation presents the “Knight of Freedom” award to outstanding figures who contribute to the promotion of the values of General Casimir Pulaski, such as freedom, justice and democracy. It is also the home to the Polish branch of the Women in International Security network.
The Casimir Pulaski Foundation has been ranked as the first among Polish Think Tanks dealing with defence and national security according to the ‘Global Go To Think Tank Index’ report in 2018, 2019 and 2020 respectively. The Foundation also has a status of a partner organization of the Council of Europe.
