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.

The End of the U.S.-Taliban Talks? with Jonathan Cristol

Despite progress over the last year, Donald Trump effectively ended the latest round of U.S.-Taliban negotiations with a tweet earlier this month. Will talks continue in a more understated way? Does this change anything on the ground in Afghanistan? And what is the Taliban doing in Moscow? Jonathan Cristol, author of "The United States and the Taliban before and after 9/11," discusses all this and more.

Candidates, Calculus, and the Iran Crisis

In choosing whether and how to respond to the attack on Saudi Arabian oil refineries, what is the calculus for determining action? Should the United States maintain its status as the guarantor of the Persian Gulf, protecting the security and integrity of the international energy system? What do the 2020 candidates think?

The Narrative IS Changing . . .

The narrative about America's role in the world is changing--and more evidence is accumulating that suggests that no matter how the 2020 presidential and congressional elections turn out, there is no turning the clock back to a pre-2016 status quo.
