The Slovak Security Forum (SBF) organized by the Euro-Atlantic Center in cooperation with the University Library in Bratislava is the second largest security conference and represents one of the basic pillars of the Slovak dialogue on national security.

The main focus of the conference is defined on regional and global security issues that directly concern Slovakia, as well as on various dialogues that are focused on solving problems from the perspective of Slovakia as a member of NATO and the EU. The fifteenth year will bring several unique contributions and constructive debates from experts from the scientific research environment, academia, members of non-governmental organizations and, last but not least, active young leaders in security policy and international relations.


One of the main goals of SBF 2021 is to create a platform for an open discussion on the development of the priorities of the defense and security policy of the Slovak Republic as a member of NATO and the EU. The conference is therefore divided into three panel discussions, in which speakers from the governmental, non-governmental and academic spheres will have the opportunity to discuss the most current challenges facing the Slovak Republic as one of the members of NATO and the EU. The first panel discussion focuses on the strategic documents of the Slovak Republic, the security and defense strategy of the Slovak Republic, and their role in defining the role of Slovakia in Euro-Atlantic structures. Other priorities of the project include the approach of the NATO 2030 initiative, which determines the priorities of the North Atlantic Alliance, as well as its individual members, including the Slovak Republic, for the near future. An expert discussion on the increasingly urgent topic of misinformation and their impact on the security environment, as well as society itself, will be the subject of the last panel of the Slovak Security Forum 2021. The purpose of the conference political environment at regional and global level. The outputs from the conference can serve as recommendations that the Slovak Republic could use within its activities in NATO or the EU.

The accompanying event of the Round Table of Young Leaders, which proved to be a unique format for previous discussions during previous years of the project, is also inextricably linked to the SBF. The direct round table discussion will allow participants to share their views on China and its growing political and economic influence. Emphasis will be placed on young leaders, in order to bring to the issue their pre-developed recommendations and proposals to address issues related to the influence of external actors on the young generation, which forms the basis of the future political scene.
