The Defence and Security Programme of the Casimir Pulaski Foundation is mostly focused on international security issues, the defence system of the Republic of Poland, and the Polish arms industry.  The main goal of the programme is to elaborate recommendations for Polish public administration that could form a base of further long-term strategies of Poland. The Foundation would also like to trigger debates concerning various aspects of national security and raise social awareness of these issues. The main area of analysis of our research team concerns the needs of the Polish Armed Forces in terms of modernisation and development of the Polish arms industry.

Coordinator of the Defence and Security Programme is Mr. Kamil Mazurek (, tel.: +48 22 378 11 94).
