The Federal Academy for Security Policy is in constant exchange with partners from at home and abroad to breathe life into the concept of networked security.

Since the Federal Academy for Security Policy deliberately has no teaching staff of its own, it has to rely on active cooperation with numerous organizations and institutions. The latter’s expertise is not only a guarantee for the high quality of teaching, but also for the topicality of contents.

National partners of the Federal Academy for Security Policy include the Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik (SWP / German Institute for International and Security Affairs), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Auswärtige Politik (DGAP / German Council on Foreign Relations), the Munich Security Conference and various political foundations.

At the international level, the Federal Academy for Security Policy plays an active part in merging the European Security and Defence College. However, it also maintains individual partnerships with international institutions that have dedicated themselves to a comprehensive understanding of security policy, such as

the "Institut des Hautes Études de Défense Nationale" in France,

the "Geneva Centre for Security Policy“ in Switzerland,

as well as the „Biuro Bezpieczeństwa Narodowego“ in Poland.

In cooperation with its international partners, the Federal Academy for Security Policy organizes joint forums, conferences and presentations. Even the alumni organizations are in contact and constitute an international extension of the “strategic community” network.
