GLOBAL SECURITY PROGRAMME:

The Global Security Programme aims to support innovative political leadership on security and development crises in conflict zones. Through field research such as the ICOS survey of 17,000 Afghan men on their perceptions of current security and development issues in Afghanistan, the programme provides policy-makers and the wider public with informed strategic response options, and the grassroots perspectives necessary to unlock progress.


PUBLIC SECURITY CHALLENGES:

Based in Rio de Janeiro, the Centre of Excellence on Public Security provides innovative research, advocacy and policy analysis to promote pragmatic responses, supporting states to solve public security crises and pave the way for social and economic development.

PUBLIC HEALTH & DRUG CONTROL:

Working in partnership with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, ICOS co-chairs the Rome Consensus for a Humanitarian Drug Policy together with the Italian Red Cross. The Rome Consensus brings together 110 national societies of the Red Cross and Red Crescent to promote and implement humanitarian and public health-focused drug policies.

Through a unique mix of field research – from Afghanistan to Somalia – public reports, films and project implementation, ICOS examines the root causes of current crises, and works to challenge out-of-date perceptions to achieve measurable and direct policy results. ICOS’s objective is to promote open debate in order to alleviate current governance, development and economic crises and ensure that future policy-making in these areas is informed, humanitarian and delivers impact.
