Orientation Course for Defence Attachés and Senior Officials in East African Countries - Addis Ababa

Building Confidence and Experience

Defence Attachés operate at the intersection of diplomacy, strategy, economics and public relations. As their roles and missions are complex and evolving, it is important for new Defence Attachés to be properly prepared to take on new functions.

Now in its 6th year, GCSP’s orientation course for military officers, diplomats and senior officials involved in defence and diplomacy has become an internationally recognised complement to national training. 

A recent survey of the courses 2013-2015 highlighted these courses satisfy the demands from the international community. In addition to that, there seems to be a growing need for advanced courses also.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Participants will be selected by their Ministry of Defence or Ministry of Foreign Affairs based on the following criteria:

  • potential, newly appointed or recently accredited Defence Attachés
  • diplomats working in the context of defence and diplomacy
  • senior officials from ministries working directly or indirectly with a Defence Attaché
