Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik (SWP), the German Institute for International and Security Affairs, is Germany’s most important foreign-policy think-tank. SWP is based in Berlin. Its eight research divisions cover all the regions of the world and the great majority of relevant overarching issues: from classical security policy, European policy and questions of international law, global governance and the shifting balance of power in the international system through to climate protection, demography, resource scarcity and the challenges involved in dealing with non-state violent actors or cross-border socio-political developments. SWP gives advice to the German Bundestag (parliament) and federal government as well as to other public and private institutions in Europe and internationally. It is largely publicly funded through the Federal Chancellery, but also receives research grants and private support for conferences, projects and junior or senior fellowships.
