In order to promote young professionals, the Federal Academy for Security Policy established the Young Leaders in Security Policy. The working group consists of young professionals from politics, sciences, public administration, business, and civil society organisations. A permanent appointment is mandatory.

The Young Leaders in Security Policy are involved in the work of the Federal Academy and thereby gain a first-hand practical understanding of security policy. Another objective of the initiative is to foster networking among young professionals.

Regular meetings allow the group members to exchange views on German and international security policy issues and to contribute with their respective expertise in the security policy debate.

The membership into the working group Young Leaders in Security Policy is based on personal invitation only and regularly ends after three years.
