The Kiel Seapower Series, besides its flagship event "Kiel International Seapower Symposium", also includes academic workshops. Topics are diverse and include such areas as maritime strategy, naval history, and other contemporary maritime security matters. These small conferences are designed to advance the scientific conversation by providing fresh thinking and giving junior and senior experts a chance to interact and engage in a strictly by invitation-only setting.


The Institute for Security Policy at Kiel University (ISPK) provides research, analysis and commentary on conflicts and strategic issues. ISPK is committed to furthering the security policy discourse in Germany and abroad by way of focused, interdisciplinary, policy-oriented research.
