Promoting Security in the Black Sea Region through Greater Engagement of Non-Governmental Organizations

The project "Promoting Security in the Black Sea Region through Greater Engagement of Non-Governmental Organizations" is realized by the Centre for Global Studies Strategy XXI with the support from the Black Sea Trust Fund, a project of the German Marshall Fund of the United States.

The project is aimed at assessments of the security situation in the Black Sea Region by monitoring it and preparing policy-papers for recognition of threats and signs of its aggravation, provided to policy-makers, as well as strengthening regional security cooperation among non-governmental players.

The goal of the project is permanent assessments of the security situation in the Black Sea Region (including the Sea of Azov and Kerch Strait) for timely recognition of threats, challenges and signs of its aggravation, as well as strengthening regional security cooperation among non-governmental players.

The goal is reached through:

- Monitoring the security situation in the Region, military changes and timely informing about new challenges and threats, dramatic changes and signs of its aggravation;

- Promoting enhancing security in the Region through providing governmental institutions in the Black Sea countries, international organisations, key players and interested parties with the assessments of the security situation and proposals to strengthen security;

- Promoting regional security cooperation among non-governmental players to strengthen security in the Black Sea region.

In parallel, the society is informed about the security situation in the Black Sea region through the publication of analytical papers in the analytical journal “Black Sea Security” (quarterly publication of the Center for Global Studies “Strategy XXI”).

Project Duration: June 01, 2019 – July 30, 2020
