Mapping Today’s Security Environment to Meet Tomorrow’s Challenges
The New Issues in Security Course (NISC) is now in its 19th year. The NISC responds to the need for a focus on new and emerging security challenges arising from a rapidly globalising security environment.
The eight-week course, in two modules, examines the evolution of security with a special focus on human security, the interlinkages between issues, and the value of adopting a more forward-looking approach in international security. The course deepens participants’ understanding of contemporary security threats in order to prepare and empower them to have greater strategic impact in building a better security environment for the future. The course offers a unique opportunity to interact with senior professionals from around the world and within different sectors.
Open to mid-career professionals working in national ministries, international organisations and non-governmental organisations. Candidates must have a relevant university degree and exposure to
peace and security issues. Serving officers must have completed an advanced military staff course.
The course is offered free of tuition charges for all participants as part of Switzerland's contribution to the Partnership for Peace Programme.
