| ABOUT THE WSF |

The Warsaw Security Forum (WSF) is a leading European platform devoted to transatlantic cooperation and focused on elaborating shared responses to common security challenges.

The WSF annual conference convenes over 1500 participants from 40 countries, among others heads of state, ministers, leading personalities of international and non-governmental organizations, high-ranking representatives from business, the media, academia, and civil society.

Since its inception in 2014, the Warsaw Security Forum has been organized by the Casimir Pulaski Foundation, in strategic partnership with NATO, the National Security Bureau to the President of the Republic of Poland and under the patronage of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland.

Partnerships include four international organizations – the Council of Europe, the European Union (EU), North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) – as well as 30 American and European think-tanks.
