What we do

We are focused on four main thematic areas.





Our annual programme is structured around four main areas: Cooperative Security Environment, Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction,  Countering Transnational Security Threats and Security Sector Governance.

CSE Pillar C-WMD Network CTST Pillar SSG Pillar

The Cooperative Security Environment Pillar is one of RACVIAC domains with the longest tradition. The Pillar focuses mainly on:

  • arms control treaties and agreements,
  • implications and role of arms control policy aimed at confidence and security building,
  • regional aspects of arms control in SEE,
  • physical security and stockpile management.

The C-WMD Network is the project launched in 2015, in cooperation with the US Defence Threat Reduction Agency, with the aim of facilitating the development of national C-WMD counter-proliferation strategies and response plans of the SEE countries. Currently, the project is in the Phase two: developing the mechanisms and projects for the future regional cooperation.

The Countering Transnational Security Threats Pillar focuses its scope of activities from mainly regional security cooperation issues to broader politico-military aspects of Euro-Atlantic integration, NATO and EU security, and transnational security threats and challenges, such as: countering terrorism and organized crime, cyber security, energy and environmental security, crisis and disaster management etc.

The activities of Security Sector Governance Pillar are aimed at putting in place the mechanisms and systems for an effective, accountable and civilian-controlled security sector. It focuses on:

  • Parliamentary oversight
  • Human rights & gender perspective
  • Crisis management
  • Border Security
  • Building integrity and fighting corruption
  • Politico-military aspects of security.
