German Institute for International and Security Affairs

The German Institute for International and Security Affairs (Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik, or SWP) was founded in 1962, at the height of the Cold War, as an independent foreign policy research organisation. Its mission was defined in its statutes, which are still valid today: “to conduct scholarly research in the fields of international politics and foreign and security policy (…) with the objective of providing independent research-based policy advice”. The spectrum of research activities expanded in step with international developments. SWP is largely publicly funded, through the budget of the Chancellery, but also receives private support, in particular research grants and funding for conferences and doctoral and post-doc stipends.
