In today’s world, countries need to deal with both military and non-military threats. Security issues has therefore risen to the top of the agenda. The gradual reduction of America’s presence in Europe and lessening defence spending among many European allies has made it necessary for a wider take on security issues in Central Europe. Due to its geopolitical position, Poland is a perfect location to undertake a discussion on European security issues.

The Warsaw Security Forum addresses these issues through an international gathering of experts who specialize in security. Its purpose is to exchange professional experiences as well as to present solutions to complex regional security challenges confronting the Central and Eastern European region. The two day forum will consist of numerous plenary sessions dedicated to security issues, particularly those related to the future of NATO; the Common Security and Defence Policy of the European Union, including relations with the Russian Federation; energy security; border states of NATO and the European Union; new threats; and security in the economic, military and politic dimensions. The WSF2017 will take place on November 8th and 9th, 2017 in Warsaw, Poland.


The mission of the Warsaw Security Forum is to enhance understanding of European and NATO security policy, which will be accomplished through dialogue between key policy makers and academics.

Each of the participating countries understands security issues in a unique way due to their geopolitical position. WSF fosters a spirit of collaboration for meaningful discussion of past, current and future international security issues. Ambassadors and other worldwide experts are cordially invited to participate by presenting their ideas and discussing the security topics considered most important from a Polish perspective.
