Initial Situation

  • Security is one of the key issues of our time. The world is changing rapidly. Geostrategic, political, religious, economic and social changes, amongst others, have also an impact on Switzerland. 

  • Security is a significant strategic asset for a country and central to our prosperity.

  • Currently, the citizens of Switzerland are quite inadequately informed about security issues and related risks. However, (well) informed political and economic leaders as well as educated fellow citizens are crucial for a working democracy and a safe country.

Objectives and Tasks

  • Through the SWISS SECURITY FORUM (FSS) we launch an independent and holistically oriented dialogue platform for all aspects of security, independent of stakeholders and party politics.

  • Our assignment is to fill the existing vacuum of information with active communication. Therefore, a fact-based and neutral dialogue is needed. This dialogue has to be led with all parts of society and not just supporters of the army.

  • The goal is to foster knowledge and comprehension of security issues and new risks within civil society. Furthermore, we want to address all segments of the population and not just friends and supporters of the army and security forces.

Independence from Political and Economic Interests

  • The SWISS SECURITY FORUM (SSF) does not comment on political issues (consultations, votes, etc.) like other interest groups and associations, and it will not take part in any political campaigning. 

  • As a neutral dialogue platform, it focuses on discussions of key security issues from a neutral stance while highlighting different perspectives.

Focus Groups

  • The SWISS SECURITY FORUM (SSF) is looking for a targeted exchange with all actors and organisations from business, politics, society and science that are interested in the subject.

  • The goal is to address all sections of society - specifically those with reservations or critical opinions on security issues. 

  • Therefore, the SSF's goal is to build up multipliers in all parts of society which then share informations in their environment and network.
