Public Affairs ProgrammaDetails

Leiden University

Vanaf 2019 is het mogelijk zelf een leergang Public Affairs samen te stellen. We bieden de verschillende onderwerpen van de leergang aan in pakketten. Naast de vertrouwde onderdelen van de leergang, zijn er ook nieuwe onderwerpen toegankelijk.

Public affairs betreft het beïnvloeden van processen van beleid en besluitvorming. Zowel van binnen als van buiten de overheid proberen organisaties invloed uit te oefenen op die processen. Dat wordt om een aantal redenen steeds complexer.

Besluitvorming verplaatst zich ten eerste in toenemende mate naar Europees niveau, waardoor de concurrentie om invloed in de Brusselse beleidsarena’s alleen maar toeneemt. Daarnaast laat het Nederlandse politieke systeem de opkomst van allerlei single issue bewegingen zien die de concurrentie met de traditionele belangengroepen aangaan. Bovendien is de publieke opinie van toenemend belang. De publieke opinie klinkt steeds luider en wordt lastiger te voorspellen door de toegenomen assertiviteit van de burger en de dominantie van snelle media als televisie en internet bij beeldvorming. Om in deze dynamische omgeving effectief invloed uit te kunnen (blijven) oefenen, moet de public affairs professional beschikken over inzicht in politieke en bestuurlijke processen.

Studiebelasting: U moet rekening houden met een dag voorbereidingstijd per module.

U ontvangt na het volgen van de leergang het bijbehorende certificaat van het Centre for Professional Learning, Universiteit Leiden.

Verdiepingsleergang Terrorisme, recht en veiligheidDetails

Leiden University

In het veld van terrorisme en contraterrorisme zijn verschillende organisaties actief die ieder vanuit hun eigen rol en doelen naar vraagstukken kijken. Juist in samenhang met elkaar wordt hun aanpak effectief. Een correcte duiding van informatie en een effectieve uitwisseling van deze informatie is daarom zeer belangrijk.

In deze leergang ga je op zoek naar de verbindingen en grenzen in informatiedeling en samenwerking. Je krijgt een overzicht van rollen, culturen, bevoegdheden en belangen van verschillende organisaties en gaat in op vragen als: hoe raken bepaalde interventies en maatregelen anderen? En op welke manier passen deze in het grotere veiligheidsdoel dat je gezamenlijk hebt?

Werkwijze
In een groep van maximaal 15 deelnemers behandel je twee cases waarbij je vanuit verschillende rollen een gezamenlijke opdracht vervult. Je behandelt de cases vanuit het perspectief van een andere dan je eigen organisatie. Tussendoor reflecteer je met andere deelnemers op gemaakte keuzes. Experts uit het veld en de wetenschap geven je een update over de laatste ontwikkelingen in je vakgebied. Zij duiden en verdiepen de context van de door jou behandelde cases en dagen je uit de consequenties van je keuzes te doordenken.

De cases waarmee je aan de slag gaat, staan in het teken van:

  • Radicalisering    (Module 1)
  • Netwerkaanpak  (Module 2)

De eerste twee dagen schuif je aan bij een casusoverleg. De derde en vierde dag verschuift de aandacht van individu naar netwerk en denk je na over mogelijke interventies daarin. Je leert van elkaars kennis en ervaring en komt tot beter begrip van elkaars posities.

Vragen die onder andere aan bod komen, zijn:  

  • Hoe vervul je een regierol terwijl je niet over alle informatie beschikt?
  • Hoe past je organisatiebelang binnen het veiligheidsbelang?
  • Met welke informatie help je een ander vooruit?
  • Hoe opereert een netwerk?
  • Hoe effectief is een netwerk aanpak?
  • En hoe plaats je die binnen een juridisch kader?

Voorbereiding
Ter voorbereiding op de leergang vindt er een intake gesprek plaats met de programmaleider. Tijdens dit gesprek breng je samen met de programmaleider je persoonlijke leerdoelen in kaart en bespreek je welke expertise en vraagstukken je meebrengt.
