Simon Institute for Longterm Governance

Simon Institute for Longterm Governance

SI helps international policymakers govern extreme risks and cooperate with future generations.

To guarantee the survival and flourishing of civilization, extreme risks and the value of the long-term future has to be put in context for international policy actors to develop and prioritize appropriate policy responses.

The Simon Institute for Longterm Governance (SI) is a non-profit based in one of the few hubs for global governance: Geneva, Switzerland. While most think tanks focus on supplying information, SI specializes in supporting policy networks in processing the information overload, with a focus on the world’s most pressing problems. To achieve this, SI pursues the following activities:

  1. Supporting international civil servants and diplomats with training programs that simultaneously (i) facilitate group decision-making by practicing key skills and tools and (ii) foster an understanding of extreme risks and the significance of their mitigation (learn more about our theory of change);
  2. Supporting longtermist actors in their engagement with international policy processes through research, training and networking (learn more about policy engagement advice); and
  3. Analyzing international policy processes and how to improve their consideration of future generations (learn more about our research approach).
