Center for Security Studies

Director: Dr. Ayman Khalil


The Center for Security Studies was established in 1995 with a mandate of pursuing specialized research, presenting accurate analysis and holding high-level training sessions on security, strategic and technical issues.



The Center for Security Studies strongly believes that security is not strictly a military issue but rather a comprehensive term which necessarily have to deal with water, environment, refugees, disarmament among other issues. The Center views security as a multidisciplinary issue that should involve the widest spectrum of individuals and benefit from the contribution of all sectors in society.
