Central security policy challenges for Europe

We deal with the central security policy challenges for Europe. A worldwide network of internationally active terrorism and hybrid conflicts are a growing threat. We devote ourselves to in-depth analyses and studies of such uncertainty scenarios and want to actively contribute well-founded strategies and solution scenarios or make the effects of prevention and intervention assessable.

This will contribute to strengthening confidence in public order for a stable, strategic environment for promoting cooperation with European neighbours. The focus is on overcoming intercultural, interreligious conflicts.

We are registered as an association with the name “European Institute for Counter Terrorism and Conflict Prevention”.

We are based in Vienna and are active worldwide. We are an independent, non-partisan and non-profit research institute.

E.I.C.T.P. conducts research on the causes and effects of terrorism and terrorist acts, as well as on suitable ways and means to prevent and combat terrorist activities and groups.
