Arms races and technological risks to global security increasingly get public attention. Nuclear crises are becoming more likely; cyberattacks and new weapon systems dominate the headlines. The impact of artificial intelligence on peace and security policy has created new challenges for humanity. At the same time, it is becoming ever more difficult to agree on common rules. Our purpose is to provide scientifically grounded analyses and concepts for application and implementation to enhance peace and security. Our team members have interdisciplinary backgrounds, which allows us to analyse these new challenges from diverse perspectives. We interrogate the impact of technological innovation on peace and security, and we examine the complex interdependencies of present-day arms dynamics. Additionally, a part of our work involves policy consultation. In this capacity, we work closely with the federal government and with international organisations, research centres and NGOs. We interact with the public through guest contributions and interviews for leading daily newspapers, radio, and television stations.
