Establishing avenues for our community Since 1986, the GCSP equips policy and decision makers in governments, international organisations, non-profit organisations and the private sector with the knowledge, skills and a network to support their careers and their organisations. The GCSP Community Engagement

Office establishes avenues for members of the community to be able to develop their personal networks. It cultivates a creative atmosphere where diverse expertise can extend boundaries and collaboratively shape solutions to the world’s many challenges.


Armed with the knowledge and an innovative way of thinking, we can change the world and make it a better place.

Shape The GCSP community is an integral part of the GCSP and contributes to the centre’s capacity with its knowledge and expertise At the GCSP we operate in a co-creational model, bringing together participants, practitioners and academics to work collaboratively across cultures, organisations and professional domains. Shape the future together: Alumni Notes This short policy paper written by GCSP’s alumni addresses new and traditional security issues and challenges relevant to the GCSP’s training and objectives.

Alumni Guest Speakers Numerous alumni return to the GCSP’s classrooms and address the audience with their insights into certain security challenges. Community Stories In monthly interviews, community members share their current projects or discuss political situations in their countries. Contact us with your story, research and publications alumni@gcsp.ch

I strongly believe that the GCSP community will be a great help in pursuing my career and dreams, through the sharing of knowledge from experienced people all over the world. Also, this community will serve as a source of my inspiration to do more great work for my country and other parts of the world that I may be fortunate to work in.
