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.

Advanced Summer Programme on Countering Terrorism within a Rule of Law FrameworkDetails

T.M.C. Asser Instituut

This Advanced summer programme on terrorism, counter-terrorism and the rule of law is coming back for the 8th time to bring together experts, academics and policy makers from around the world working in the field of counter-terrorism. It will take place from 26 – 30 August 2019 at the Asser Institute in the Hague. 

Terrorism events such as 9/11 (US), 7/7 (UK), 13/11 (Paris) and others have triggered an increase in the security-related legislative provisions in a number of states across the world. These provisions have broadly aimed to address perceived ‘gaps’ in existing domestic legislation and security strategies to bolster states’ ability to respond to acts of terrorism. This has been done through a range of new or updated administrative and criminal law measures. In aiming to pre-empt terrorism related activities as early as feasible, states have further introduced additional preparatory and inchoate offences, curbs on financial and other support, limitations on the scope of the right to freedom speech and others. Assessing the proportionality and legitimacy of such measures is the focus of our upcoming Advanced Summer Programme on Terrorism, Counter-Terrorism and the Rule of Law.

The programme, co-organised by the Asser Institute and the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism – The Hague (ICCT), offers an in-depth look at the challenges that come with adopting and implementing counter-terrorism measures while ensuring respect for human rights, fundamental freedoms and the rule of law. During an intensive week, experts from within academia and practice explore international and domestic legal aspects of counter-terrorism.

Last year’s programme covered a wide range of topics such as the (lack of a) definition of terrorism in international law, legal limits to military responses to terrorism, criminal justice responses to terrorism, the crime-terror nexus, evidentiary issues (including evidence collection from a battlefield) and other prosecutorial challenges, administrative and security measures. Aside from the core lectures, the course also included interactive sessions, study visits, group discussions (Chatham House Rules) and panel presentations.

The list of last years’ speakers includes:
