Welcome to the FES ROCPE in Vienna


About Us

The FES Regional Office for Cooperation and Peace in Europe (FES ROCPE) addresses today’s profound challenges to European security. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on 24 February 2022 was a watershed moment for security in Europe and has rendered obsolete previous visions of the European order. In these uncertain times, our office develops new ideas under the aegis of solution-oriented policymaking, together with experts, politicians and policy planners from Eastern Europe, Russia, the EU and the US. Our activities include:

  • Regional and international workshops aimed at developing new concepts on stabilising the security situation, dealing with conflicts and achieving lasting peace in Europe;
  • a regional network of young professionals;
  • regular public opinion polling on security matters;
  • cooperation with the OSCE in the three dimensions of security: the politico-military, the economic and environmental, and the human.

Security and Media

Reporting on international affairs and security policy in Europe is becoming a challenge these days. Over the past few years this complex matter has become increasingly difficult to understand for all actors involved: journalists, experts, politicians and consumers. Especially in foreign policy crisis situations it is not easy at all for journalists to get the facts right and come up with a balanced account of what has happened. More

Security and Climate

The climate crisis threatens our existence. This has been a consensus among scientists for years. Nevertheless, the public's awareness of the urgency has only increased in the last few years. The crisis is not just an environmental crisis. It is also a threat to states' stability, peace, and security. The consequences of the climate crisis have implications for foreign policy. More
