Meet the Centre for International Security

Are you part of the Hertie School community and want to learn more about the Centre for International Security, its mission and research activities? Join us for a virtual get-together and meet our team. We look 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 taken over by Professor Marina Henke as Centre Director in February 2020. 

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. 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.
