Defence and security from the heart of Europe
RUSI Europe, the European subsidiary of the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), is a think tank working for a safer and more stable Europe.
RUSI Europe studies, promotes, debates and reports on all issues relating to international defence and security in Europe and abroad. RUSI Europe is a not-for-profit international organisation, is independent of government and is committed to objectivity, integrity and impartiality in all of its work.
Based in Brussels, RUSI Europe is committed to help solve the most urgent security and defence challenges. RUSI Europe carries out research and provides a forum for the security and defence sectors in the European Union and other NATO countries.
RUSI Europe collaborates closely with its international parent organisation, RUSI, by exchanging expertise and by developing relationships with international stakeholders.
RUSI and RUSI Europe are implementing several EU projects, including understanding maritime security, organised crime and combating violent extremism, and a range of other projects with EU Member States and NATO.
RUSI Europe draws its heritage from the Royal United Services Institute whose work spanning over 180 years is already highly regarded across Europe.
RUSI is one of the world’s leading think tanks on defence and security, building on 180 years of international work. RUSI covers a variety of issues relating to national security (counter-terrorism, serious and organised crime, cyber security, policing and intelligence), international security (geopolitical and regional security issues), defence policy (proliferation and nuclear policy, military sciences, defence industries and society), financial crime and security (countering terrorist finance and money laundering) and RUSI International (capacity building, strategic and geopolitical analysis).
