Arms Proliferation: Legal and Other Responses Module

jeu, 15/01/2015 - 15:43

Arms proliferation is both a traditional and a new security issue. In fact, it is as old as armament (and indeed technology) itself. What is an almost inextricable challenge for the international community is the complexity of devising effective policy responses to an increasingly transnational threat resulting from the action of a diversity of state and non-state actors. 

In order to help comprehend this phenomenon, this one-day module will attempt to address the multiform nature of the arms proliferation problem, to assess how it has been hitherto dealt with, and to explore and discuss what may be done from now on, whether about weapons of mass destruction or conventional weapons.

Enhancing Leadership for Peacebuilding: 7th Senior Level Course on Peacebuilding

jeu, 25/09/2014 - 16:49

This five day Leadership Course provides an opportunity for current and potential leaders to enhance their understanding of sustainable peacebuilding and leadership styles.

This course provides an opportunity for practitioners to enhance their understanding of both leadership and sustainable peacebuilding.

Maritime Security and the Legal Order of the Oceans

jeu, 25/09/2014 - 14:05

“Sea is free to all and nobody has the right to deny others access to it.
Every nation is free to travel to every other nation, and to trade with it.”
Mare Liberium, Hugo Grotius 1609

Cybersecurity Module

jeu, 25/09/2014 - 12:29

The Cyber world is evolving very quickly. It is becoming a growing challenge for the nations and internationally. The key question is how to improve the preparedness of the modern societies and how to build new capacities in the cyber word. Awareness is crucial to further development as the weakest links in the chain are the users, be they individuals, companies or governments, while education is decisive in mitigating the shortage of skilled cyber-professionals. New collaboration models are needed and the role of the private sector in cyber security is crucial.

Cyber security has also become a integral dimension of global security policy and almost every crisis is having its “cyber front”. The most recent case is the Ukrainian crisis. Edward Snowden’s disclosures have been a serious blow to citizens’ trust of governments. Can political leaders still impact users’ online behavior? Is personal data gathering an infringement of human rights or a “necessary evil”? How can governments be held more accountable in cyber-space? Cyber-security’s concepts and legislation clearly need to be better defined.

What does the interdisciplinary nature of political advising mean to you? Political advisors are instrumental actors in the decision-making processes of peace and security efforts. Their effectiveness is of fundamental importance both on the ground and at an international level. Their duties require them to synthesize information rapidly, to develop a comprehensive understanding of the context and key issues at hand, and to convey their understanding and analysis to their institutions at varying levels while building and nurturing meaningful relationships.

This course builds the political advisors’ skill sets and networks needed to carry out their work more efficiently and effectively.
