Our mission

Central European Strategy Council is an independent non-governmental organisation built on the foundations of a 20-year history of the Slovak Atlantic Commission.

It is a regional multiplier of its core mission, which is to strengthen the voice of Slovakia and Central Europe in European and global affairs and define and support the strategic role of Central Europe in international politics. The organisation connects key Central European personalities and experts in foreign and security policy.

Central European Strategy Council associates three organisations – the Slovak Atlantic Commission (SAC), the Central European Policy Institute (CEPI) and the Centre for European Affairs (CEA). The three well-established organisations created a new umbrella entity in 2013. Central European Strategy Council has 30 members of staff who run 60 projects in 18countries.
