Under the umbrella of its Creativity and Innovation Initiative, the GCSP and its Geopolitics and Global Futures Programme have established a prize in order to recognise deserving individuals or organisations that have an innovative approach to addressing international security challenges.

The prize is designed to reach across all relevant disciplines and fields. It seeks to reward the most inspiring, innovative and ground-breaking contribution of the year, whether this be in the form of an initiative, invention, research publication, or organisation.

The prize consists of a cash award of CHF 10’000, a ceremonial awards dinner in Geneva, and all travel expenses for the winner.

Applications

This is an international competition, and applications are accepted from anywhere in the world. Applications are welcome from either individuals or groups, from both the public and private sectors.

Proposals can be wide-ranging in scope but should include a description of the contribution with a focus on how it is novel, and on its significance to sustainable global security.
The 1st GCSP Prize for Innovation in Global Security will be presented at an award ceremony in November 2015.

Selection process

Applications will be evaluated by a panel of judges who work in security and government. The panel will be co-chaired by the GCSP director, Ambassador Christian Dussey and the Head of the Geopolitics and Global Futures Programme, Prof Nayef Al-Rodhan.

Please send applications by 15 September 2015 to innovation.prize@gcsp.ch.

Killer Robots, Ethics, & Governance, with Peter Asaro

Peter Asaro, co-founder of the International Committee for Robot Arms Control, has a simple solution for stopping the future proliferation of killer robots, or lethal autonomous weapons: "Ban them." What are the ethical and logistical risks of this technology? How would it change the nature of warfare? And with the U.S. and other nations currently developing killer robots, what is the state of governance?

As Biden Stalls, Is the "Restorationist" Narrative Losing Ground?

U.S. Global Engagement Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev notes that former Vice President Joe Biden is, in foreign policy terms, most associated with a "restorationist" approach. How does this differentiate from other candidates? What approach will resonate most with voters?

Democratic Candidates & Foreign Policy after Iowa, with Nikolas Gvosdev

With the (incomplete) results of the Iowa Caucus putting the spotlight on Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders, what do we know about their foreign policy platforms? How do they differentiate themselves from Joe Biden? Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev shares his thoughts and touches on voters' possible perception of Sanders as a "socialist" and how climate change could become an issue in this election.
