Training Course on International Security Details

The Training Course on International Security offers a unique opportunity to dive into topics that concern us all. What are the latest developments in international security? What is going on in the Middle East? Which (growing) roles do energy politics and cyber threats play? What does the future hold for European defence cooperation and how relevant is NATO anno 2019? If you want to learn more about the answers to these questions, this course is for you.

We go beyond the headlines to truly grasp international developments and their impact on security. It seems evident that the current world order is becoming more and more insecure. The situation in the Middle East is volatile, illiberalism is seemingly on the rise and multilateral cooperation is under pressure. New geopolitical rather than rules-based considerations define relationships between for example Russia, the United States, China, and the EU, which thus reshapes European security and defence policies and priorities. What is driving these changes? Together with experts, practitioners and policymakers, we gain deeper insights into current international issues.

Is this course for you? 

This Training Course is for anyone with a keen interest in security-related developments. The course will help you understand the players and institutions that are tasked with a security mandate, analyse issues of international security and grasp how recent developments fit into the broader international security context. 

There are no formal requirements for participation but it is advisable that you are equipped with:

  • Basic knowledge of international relations;
  • General awareness of the main news headlines;
  • Interest in international security issues (either personally or professionally).

Previous participants were working for Thales Group, Cordaid, KLM Airlines, DHL, the Netherlands Ministry of Defence, Ministries of Foreign Affairs, the Police Department, and more.  

What will you learn?

By the end of the training course, you will be able to:

  • Identify the major trends and recent developments in international security and assess them for the benefit of your company or organisation;
  • Analyse and discuss issues of international security with colleagues and peers, and make recommendations to managers.

Which methods will be used?

The training course will consist of interactive knowledge sessions on trends in international security, in which the most recent developments will be put into a broader perspective. The training programme strikes a careful balance between theory, discussion and practice.

Examples of topics are fragile states and conflict, defence policies, international cooperation, terrorism, and geopolitical trends.

You will meet leading Clingendael researchers, experts and trainers as well as policymakers and practitioners from the field.

Background
Weapons of Mass Destruction have re-entered the international political stage in recent years. After many years in which there was relatively little attention for these weapons and the agreements dealing with them, chemical weapons were used in Syria, Malaysia and the United Kingdom, and nuclear weapons returned in political rhetoric and arms races as if the Cold War has never ended. Arms control, non-proliferation and disarmament initiatives came under pressure due to increasing international tensions. How to understand and deal with these new dynamics?

The annual Training Programme on Disarmament and Non-Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction (“WMD Training Programme”) organised by the T.M.C Asser Instituut and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) offers in-depth knowledge on this topic.

Fees:
The fee for this training is €1495. This fee includes lectures, study materials, study visits, water/tea/coffee and lunch during working days, a reception and an opening dinner.

The fee does not cover (international) travel costs, domestic travel to and from airports, (hotel) accommodation, insurance or other expenses. The T.M.C. Asser Instituut can provide prospective participants with a list of suitable hotels in The Hague.
