RACVIAC – Centre for Security Cooperation is an international, independent, regionally owned organization, with the mission to foster dialogue and cooperation on security matters in South Eastern Europe through a partnership between the countries of the region and their international partners.
 

Director's Message

It has been almost two decades since a group of nations from the region and beyond came together with the common understanding that lasting peace can be attained only if mutual trust and understanding in South East Europe is achieved.

With this in mind they established RACVIAC and made the very idea of dialogue and cooperation on security matters the core mission of the Centre to be pursued through a partnership between the countries of the region and their international partners.
