About this event

The Warsaw Security Forum is one of the leading European security conferences devoted to transatlantic cooperation and focused on elaborating shared responses to common challenges, with an emphasis on the security of Central and Eastern Europe.

Organized since 2014, the Warsaw Security Forum gathers annually over 1500 highest representatives of governments, international organizations, industry, think tanks and civil society coming from over 90 countries.

The two days program is packed with on-stage high-level panel discussions, Chatham House rules-based round tables and dozens of bilateral meetings mixed with industry presentations and cultural program of the Guest Country – all designed to find answers to the most pressing current political and military issues.

During the Forum, the Casimir Pulaski Foundation presents the Knight of Freedom award to an outstanding figure who contributed to the promotion of the values of General Casimir Pulaski, i.e. freedom, justice and democracy.

The Warsaw Security Forum provides also a platform for the New Security Leaders program which involves the voices of a new generation of decision-makers and experts specializing in transatlantic relations.

Last, but not least female participants of the Warsaw Security Forum traditionally meet for a working breakfast and other formats organized by Women in International Security Poland, attesting to the importance of gender balance and equality in the international security dialogue.

Since its inception, the Warsaw Security Forum has been organized by the Casimir Pulaski Foundation, in strategic partnership with NATO and the National Security Bureau to the President of the Republic of Poland. The event is co-organized with the German Marshall Fund of the United States since 2020.
