Athena laboratory’s main mission is to become the leading forum for Chile’s civil society in all matters related to Foreign and Defense Affairs, while focusing on independence, embracing new ideas, intellectual honesty and healthy idealism, while remaining realistic, precise and pragmatic. This will enable us to build a well-de ned national identity that is current and shared.
In order to move towards this goal, we will carry out research, we will hold seminars, conduct comparative analysis, produce critical documents, carry out surveys, and we will also provide training based on the practices of the top international research centers worldwide. Some of these centers will become natural partners in this endeavor.
We will actively seek joint activities with public entities, private organizations, universities, Armed Services institutes, and locally- based international centers that focus on these subjects. Always for the purpose of adding efforts and helping.
