Miroslav MAREŠ

The paper analyzes the perspectives of the Institute of Strategic Studies of the University of Defence. This institute should profile itself as a governmental as well as a university think-tank in the field of military security and strategy. The main goal of research should be strategic analyses of global security environment with specific interests in the crisis regions where there exist serious military threats to the security of the Czech Republic or its allies from the NATO and the EU or where the "out of area" operations of the Armed Forces of the Czech Republic are possible. The institute should also analyze the trends in military art and strategy in the 21st century and the strategic development of military technologies and resources (with respect to capabilities of the Czech Armed Forces). Scholarly publications and educational work should strengthen the position of the Institute within scientific security community.
