  • New Security Foundation (UK)
    The New Security Foundation exists to promote a wider understanding of the nature of modern security and its implications for civil society. The Foundation has two main objectives. The first is to conduct research into emerging security issues and to produce information and analysis, which can be made available to decision makers in both the public and private sectors. The second is to provide an international forum for debate and discussion about the nature of modern security and its implications. A network of experts with a background in academia, government, intelligence, the armed forces, the emergency services and business enables the New Security Foundation to draw on an international pool of expertise and provide an insight into emerging defence and security issues.

    The New Security Foundation was established by former British parliamentarian Dr Harold Elletson and Janis Folkmanis, economic adviser to the President of Latvia. Dr Elletson was formerly the director of the NATO Forum on Business and Security and the leader of the New Security Programme at the Centre for Defence and International Security Studies (CDISS). Janis Folkmanis is a former official of the European Commission and an expert on economic, security and energy issues affecting Eastern Europe. Both Harold Elletson and Janis Folkmanis realised that, during the last twenty years, the nature of security has changed fundamentally and civil society in Europe and elsewhere needs to think carefully about the consequences. The New Security Foundation provides both a focus for research and a forum for dialogue about key issues affecting the security of modern society.
