What was formerly known as Initiatives are now Centers. ISDP is currently in a period of expansion, tying additional renowned experts to our Institute to bring you top-level analysis.

Stockholm-China Center

The Stockholm China Center (SCC / 斯特哥尔摩中国中心) at the Institute for Security and Development Policy (ISDP) is a platform designed to facilitate an avenue for better Sino-European mutual understanding and cooperation. The Center builds on ISDP’s unique network of partners within the Chinese Communist Party, military and civil society, as well as comprehensive in-house expertise on China affairs.

Stockholm-Japan Center

The Stockholm Japan Center aims at becoming a leading forum for research and discussions on the political, social and cultural aspects of Japan and its global role.

Myanmar Center

ISDP sets out to become a base for innovative Myanmar policymaking perspectives. With a full-time presence in Myanmar, ISDP actively supports many aspects of Myanmar’s ongoing political transitions.

Turkey Center

The Turkey Center, launched in 2006, aims to function as a nexus for expertise, knowledge and information on Turkish politics, society, and foreign relations.

Center for Transnational Threats

CTT’s work aims to provide strategic analysis and practical solutions to help decision makers in both the public and private sectors to achieve their goals. The aim of the initiative is to raise the public awareness and create a debate on the negative societal effects of transnational threats.
