New website for the Planetary Security Initiative

September 29th 2016 - 10:29

The new and improved website for the Planetary Security Initiative is now live. It is focused on the upcoming 2016 Planetary Security Conference, to be held on the 5th and 6th of December, at the Peace Palace in The Hague.

The Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs launched the Planetary Security Initiative (PSI) in 2015. Now operated by a consortium of leading think tanks working on this topic, the goal of the PSI is to strengthen the knowledge-policy interface by consolidating the community of practice on planetary security.

The PSI consortium invites you to engage in the comment sections under the news entries on the site and to join the thematic discussions on the working groups.
