Our history

In 2018, the Peruvian Army identified the need to have a study center that -through scientific research- would allow the development of strategic thinking on Security and Defense issues to contribute to decision-making and the solution of problems they face. the Army, the Defense Sector, the country and the region.

Thus, through the Resolution of the General Command of the Army No. 735 CGE of August 27, 2018, the implementation of the Center for Strategic Studies of the Army of Peru (CEEEP) was established as a decentralized body of the Education and Doctrine Command of the Peruvian Army. Army (COEDE).

After a period of implementation, with Ministerial Resolution No. 0138-2022-DE of March 10, 2022, it was resolved to create the CEEEP as an organic unit of the third organizational level dependent on the COEDE. Subsequently, through Resolution of the General Command of the Army No. 160-CGE/DIPLANE of March 18, 2022, the administrative reassignment of the CEEEP to the General Staff of the Army was ordered.

Currently, CEEEP has a team of analysts and a wide network of external collaborators. Likewise, it is associated with prestigious national and international academic institutions.
