Mission Statement: Security through Dialogue

SWISS SECURITY FORUM is a politically and commercially independent platform aimed at promoting a dialogue between Swiss civil society, public authorities, business, politics and academia regarding current and future topics and challenges in the area of security.

Starting Point: Why SSF is needed

  • Security is one of the key issues of our time. The world is changing rapidly. Geostrategic, political, religious, economic and social changes have an impact on Switzerland.

  • Security is a significant strategic asset for a country and central to our prosperity.

  • Currently, the citizens of Switzerland are inadequately informed about security issues. However, well-informed citizens as well as political and economic leaders are crucial for a working democracy and a safe country.

Objectives and Tasks of the SSF

  • Our mission is to fill the existing void of information with active communication. Therefore, a fact-based and neutral dialogue is needed. This dialogue has to be conducted with all parts of society and not just supporters of security forces.

  • The goal is to foster knowledge and comprehension of security issues and new risks within civil society. Furthermore, we want to improve the cooperation between a wide range of security stakeholders.

Activities

  • To attain our objectives, the SSF will provide a broad basis of information and conduct a in-depth security dialogue through decentralized events (in cooperation with existing organizations), the use of classical and modern means of communication, as well as projects and activities to specific topics.
