Who We Are

The European Security Journal (ESJ) is an online platform based in the Czech Republic that provides commentaries, analyses, interviews, and reports on various security and political topics relevant to Europe. The ESJ aims to provide brief, concise, and unbiased information about security developments to the European public from the perspective of V4 countries.

Our editorial team consists of topic experts, journalists, recent graduates, and university students. We also cooperate with a wide range of academic institutions and think tanks.


Why We Do It

We live in a time of disinformation and paranoia about many security threats, from migration, terrorism to cyber, social or even environmental security. The world faces the so-called geopolitical recession and security threats are becoming global, intertwined, more complex, and more relevant to regular citizens. Moreover, Central and Eastern European countries are increasingly becoming a target of Russian propaganda and disinformation and are often perceived as troublemakers by politicians in Brussels.  The importance of this region in European security and policy affairs is increasing and since the perception of these regions by the West often significantly differs from reality, we are here to mediate the Central and Eastern European point of view on international affairs.

By providing factual, concise and unbiased content to the public, we want to address the issues that Europe is facing, including disinformation, securitisation of public discourse, populism and degradation of liberal democracy. We want to help create a well-informed electorate, an indispensable condition for a functioning democracy. ESJ wants to make the expert debate on such topics accessible and specifically cover security issues form the Eastern European standpoint.

How We Do It

We combine analytical approach with traditional media reporting. We not only cover news events, but we also explain them. We rely on a variety of reliable open sources from proven reporters to reputable media agencies. Because we give our readers only the most essential information, we question the necessity of every word in our articles. While regular news sites report on breaking news, we always focus on context, relevance to European affairs and future implications.  

The European Security Journal is here to deliver brief, concise, valuable and easily digestible coverage and analysis of international relations and security.
