Panorama is historically the most prestigious project of Central European security and foreign policy community with contributions from all continents. It is published annually and during the years became a standard reference source of security community in the region. Since 2012, Panorama is indexed in prestigious Thomson Reuters Web of Science Book Citation Index and is publicly available online at www.stratpol.sk/panorama/. With an intention to further strengthen this position, as of the forthcoming volume, we decided to focus even more on the unique Central European Perspective and develop its relevance in the ongoing debate on security and international affairs.
