GENEVA, Oct. 17 (Xinhua) -- The World Economic Forum (WEF) launched on Tuesday a platform for top think thanks in the world to share expert analysis of global and regional security issues with leaders from the public and private sectors.

The WEF said the Global Platform for Geostrategic Collaboration to bring together leading policy research institutions, or think tanks, to engage the global public on geostrategic challenges in a multipolar world.

It will feature research and analysis from the Atlantic Council, International Crisis Group, RAND Corporation, Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.

These organizations will work with think-tank partners from China, India, Japan, South Korea and Russia who will join later this year.

Lee Howell, head of global programming for the WEF said: "Perceptions about geopolitics are often fragmented, biased or uninformed as a result of divisive social media and partisan fake news."

"This new platform aims to educate leaders from all walks of life about strategic, global and regional security issues," he said.

The platform aims to fill the urgent need for leaders and experts to understand the world through the eyes of their counterparts in other regions and find better ways to strengthen cooperation. The WEF said experts will share their research on areas such as international security.

It will include nuclear security, geo-economics, global governance, risks and resilience and the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
