The impact of the current security challenges on the international community – especially in today’s globalized and multipolar world – are rather unprecedented and highly significant.

JASON regularly organizes exclusive events with leading (international) security experts and stakeholders in order to provide a much needed platform for constructive dialogues. Furthermore, we are engaged with publishing our own quarterly magazine which contains sophisticated articles written by both young-professionals as well as prominent academics in our field. Hence, through these activities JASON tries to challenge students and young-professionals – regardless of their sex, age, descent, cultural and religious beliefs – to think about the impact of current international peace and security issues.


JASON was founded in 1975 by Rio Praaning and Willem van Eekelen on a commitment to provide value-free and sophisticated insights on matters of international peace and security. After close collaboration with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs JASON, or Jong Atlantisch Samenwerkingsorgaan Nederland, was born.

During its initial years of existence the activities of JASON mainly focussed on peace and security issues within the Transatlantic domain. However as a result of the changing global geopolitical climate, JASON gradually expanded its scope to international security in the broadest sense of the word. Nowadays, JASON is one of the largest institutes within its discipline in the Netherlands.
