The Azure Forum for Contemporary Security Strategy is Ireland’s first and only independent think tank dedicated to providing recommendations on peace, security and defence.
As Ireland’s first national security research institute, the Forum aims to contribute to national and international security analysis and strategic studies for a more peaceful, secure, resilient and prosperous future nationally and globally at a time of emerging global risk.
AREAS OF EXPERTISE
We provide and promote independent peace, security and defence research, analysis, dialogue and horizon scanning on contemporary national and global security questions.
OUR RESEARCH AREAS
Contemporary risks can remain unidentified, understudied or suffer from little pre-emptive and proactive operational and policy attention. Our research programmes address the geostrategic, DIME and regulatory implications of often cross-cutting modern risks to peace and security to enhance resilience.
Many emerging risks may impact the national and global economy in unexpected ways or lessen our general resilience.

EVENTS AND DIALOGUE
Our subject matter experts curate high-level public and closed-door events such as conferences, roundtables, and seminars that are impactful and provide a neutral, collaborative platform to engage with national and international partners.
It is our belief that connecting dots through cross-sectoral engagement and collaboration is key to international peace, stability and resilience. Industry, civil society, academia and the technical community are increasingly vital actors in informing and challenging international policy formulation.
