Supporting policymakers in their cooperation with future generations.


Based in Geneva, Switzerland, the Simon Institute for Longterm Governance (SI) works to mitigate global catastrophic risks, building on Herbert Simon's vision of future-proof policymaking processes.



We help policymakers understand risks, identify bottlenecks and equip them with tools to render knowledge explicit, reduce information asymmetries, and deliberate productively.
