To promote innovative thinking in policy approaches to security management, UNDSS initiated engagement with various academic institutions and think tanks on multidimensional issues impacting the global security environment. SPPS regularly attends and reports on policy dialogues and seminars organized by think tanks, such as the International Peace Institute (IPI). The IPI is an independent international non-profit think tank dedicated to managing risk and building resilience to promote peace, security, and sustainable development. SPPS maintains a database of relevant academic institutions and think tanks whose work focuses on analysis and policy dialogue concerning trends relating to the global security environment and policies.
