European Values Center for Security Policy is a non-governmental, non-partisan institute defending freedom and sovereignty. We protect liberal democracy, the rule of law, and the transatlantic alliance of the Czech Republic. We help defend Europe especially from the malign influences of Russia, China, and Islamic extremists.
We envision a free, safe, and prosperous Czechia within a vibrant Central Europe that is an integral part of the transatlantic community and is based on a firm alliance with the USA.
We provide decision-makers with expert recommendations and systematically watch and evaluate their performance. We believe the key elements of a functioning liberal democracy to be active citizens, accountable politicians, political parties that fulfil their roles, and a cohesive society that shares the values of individual liberty, human dignity, and equality before the law.
Since 2005, as a non-governmental and a non-profitable organization which is not linked to any political party, we have pursued research and educational activities. In addition to publishing analytical papers and commentaries for the media, we organize conferences, seminars, and training sessions especially for professionals.

The name ‘European Values’ refers to the basic principles which have been evolving in Europe for centuries and gave birth to political institutions of liberal democracy. Such institutions can be found in Northern America, Australia and at many other places all over the world. In our terms, the ‘European values’ are the ‘values of Western civilisation’.
Winged Pegasus in a jump is the main symbol of our logo. It represents vitality and strength of a horse combined with lightness and freedom of a bird. This is the way we aim to contribute to the public debate. Pegasus, on which heroic Bellerofontés defeated monstrous Chimera (symbolising delusion), concurrently refers to the Ancient Greece. It is the thoughts of Ancient Greek philosophers together with Roman laws and Jewish-Christian tradition that create the three main roots of the European (Western) civilisation.
