PSSI Washington is the transatlantic affiliate of THE PRAGUE SECURITY STUDIES INSTITUTE (PSSI) which is a non-profit, non-governmental organization established in early 2002 to advance the building of a just, secure, democratic, free market society in the Czech Republic and other post-communist states.PSSI’s mission is to build an ever-growing group of informed and security-minded policy practitioners dedicated to the development of democratic institutions and values in the Czech Republic and its regional neighbors. PSSI offers programs that meet the critical requirements associated with equipping new generations of young leaders to manage the complex, security-related challenges of the 21st century.
To fulfill its mission, PSSI conducts a broad range of activities under its Security Scholars Program, Program of Atlantic Security Studies, Regional Outreach Program and Corporate Council Program. PSSI aims to identify and analyze foreign policy and security-related developments in transatlantic relations and other theaters of the world, and to propose sound, achievable policies to address these and other security challenges. Its foremost interest remains, however, preserving and expanding the hard-fought freedoms of the Czech Republic and other post-communist states.
