Global Affairs

Global political issues are among the main focal points of our research. The developments of global power shifts, security policy hotspots as well as geopolitical and geo-economic tensions have a decisive impact on the security and stability of Europe and Austria. The increasing interconnectedness of the world and the subsequent political and economic implications for European decision-making processes, therefore, require a comprehensive analysis of global developments. Particularly, global challenges such as the effects of climate change and the responsible application of new technologies require a thorough understanding and increased international cooperation. The Austrian Institute for European and Security Policy contributes to the discourse on global policy developments by organising public events, providing freely accessible publications, and advising public decision-makers in Austria.
