Hello Hertie School students: Meet the Centre for International Security

Do you want to learn more about the Centre for International Security's research, activities and how to get involved? Join us for drinks and refreshments and get to know our team, as well as our future plans and ideas. We are looking forward to seeing you!

The Centre for International Security at the Hertie School provides a hub for everyone interested in the study and debate of the complex security challenges of the 21st century in Germany, Europe and around the globe. The Centre was originally founded in 2016 under the leadership of Professor Wolfgang Ischinger and  Professor Marina Henke will take over as the new Centre Director in February 2020. She will collaborate closely with the other two core faculty members of the Centre: Professor Anita Gohdes and Professor Julian Wucherpfennig.

Through academic research, teaching and public outreach, we aim to prepare the next generation of creative thinkers in the field of security and create policy impact on a broad scale.

At the Centre, we have a particular focus on the following four research themes within the field of international security: 1) Grand strategy, 2) States and non-state actors, 3) Nuclear policy and 4) Digital technology and security.
