Our consultants combine detailed knowledge of global security issues together with a deep understanding of political decision-making, and many years of expertise in facilitating constructive dialogue.

It was first established in 1982 by Dr. Scilla Elworthy.  ORG, and its founder, was awarded the Niwano Peace Prize in 2003. The Independent newspaper named ORG as one of the top 20 think-tanks in the UK in 2005.

The Sustainable Security Programme

The programme aims to develop the sustainable security concept and promote it to a wide international audience, ensure that voices from the global South play a central role in its development, and define specific options for sustainable security policies. These aims are achieved via in-depth research, dialogues with analysts and decision makers and providing new avenues for creative thinking and discussion on the real threats to global security in the 21st century.
