ABOUT THE NSL PROGRAM
The New Security Leaders program is a leadership and mentoring program for mid-career, high potential leaders from foreign policy, defense, security, and political fields. Over the course of the program, NSL participants work with the Mentors – world leaders, global thinkers and experts – to discuss and debate the most pressing global security challenges.
NSL take place jointly and in parallel with The Warsaw Security Forum (WSF), allowing accepted participants to share their ideas at the forum and help shape the discussion. The New Security Leaders program is organized by the Casimir Pulaski Foundation, the German Marshall Fund of the United States.
Integral to the the NSL Program are cohort building and Leadership Talks, held remotely in advance of the program, dedicate NSL roundtable format sessions in advance of WSF, and through select opportunities and engagements during WSF.
The idea behind the Leadership Talks modus operandi is to provide a strategic insight, highlight key issues and themes facing the Transatlantic community, discuss local or regionally focused matters, and all in a way that encourages NSL participants to share their own insights. NSL offers a rich opportunity to share insight and experience on defense issues, security policy, and world politics, all in a Chatham House Rules environment.
