Our Mission and Values


The mission of RISS is to set up a regional hub for independent research and analysis on the defence and security issues with a special focus on the wider Black Sea region. 

RISS provides strategic insight and helps policymakers to make informed decisions that enables them to come up with innovative policy solutions. 

Independence, objectivity and inclusion are our key values. We bring diverse perspectives in our analysis and make sure that our research findings are available to the wider audience. 

Our institute is a major supporter of Georgia’s European and Euro-Atlantic Integration and strives to contribute to strengthening democratic values and institutions by working with partner nations and organisations and by promoting good governance.
