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

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

At the international level, the Federal Academy for Security Policy plays an active part in merging the European Security and Defence College. In addition, the BAKS maintains partnerships with several institutions and organisations 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 these partners, the Federal Academy regularly organises joint forums, conferences and presentations.
