Understanding the Past and Shaping the Future
Today’s international peace and security challenges are deeply rooted in the past. As decision-makers attempt to navigate current complexity, those with the ability to think historically have a competitive advantage. Insight gained from understanding past patterns and disruptions helps in imagining alternative futures and implementing more effective policies. Yet it’s an approach that is often ignored in the fast-paced policy environment. This course provides participants with methods for increasing historical awareness, helping them to develop new avenues for a more constructive use of history in policymaking.
