WHO WE ARE
A pioneering virtual think tank committed to inspire and empower the next generation of peace & security leaders in order to build a more secure and prosperous world.
NextGen 5.0 is a pioneering non-profit, independent, and virtual think tank committed to inspiring and empowering the next generation of peace and security leaders in order to build a more secure and prosperous world.
We aim to create a new paradigm for the way the security field thinks about young people. Youth are at the heart of solutions to the world’s greatest challenges. We consider their role to be not that of passive participants, but rather as powerful catalysts for positive change and key contributors of novel security solutions to current and future global problems.
WE DELIVER OUR MISSION THROUGH
Participation: We engage in ongoing discussions and initiatives with global institutes, universities, and private companies about how to promote youth participation in the realm of international security affairs.
Leadership: We foster analytical, problem-solving, and leadership skills in the next generation of security experts in order to prepare them to advance their careers and compete in today's job market.
Research: We perform rigorous analysis of critical global, regional, and country-specific security challenges that bring forward fresh perspectives, new approaches, and innovative policy solutions.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
The NextGen 5.0 initiative is a very welcome and highly commendable effort to engage a new generation of scholars, practitioners, and analysts to generate new thinking and new perspective on more effectively countering terrorism and enhancing national security.
