The International Relations and Security Network (ISN) is the world’s leading open access information service for International Relations and security professionals.
Established in 1994, our mission is to promote greater knowledge sharing, learning and collaboration. We do this by building a portfolio of free, high-quality information services; providing e-learning consulting, content and technology services and products; hosting a comprehensive security training program for the intelligence community; and offering technical, editorial and administrative support to a host of online communities.
The Partnership for Peace (PfP) is a major NATO initiative introduced in January 1994. The program aims to enhance cooperation and stability in Central and Eastern European countries while increasing interoperability between the Partner Nations (PN) and NATO.
The core objectives PfP nations pursue are the transparency in national defense planning and budgeting processes; ensuring democratic control of defense forces; developing interoperable forces and command/control structures; and preparing PNs to contribute to operations under NATO authority.
There are currently 23 PfP member states located in Europe and Central Asia.
