12th Annual Senior Officers Seminar (ASOS)

Geopolitical Challenges in the 21st Century

Flag Officers are well supported on military issues close to their areas of responsibility, but they often receive less reliable information and input about the strategic and global context. Trustworthy updates on politico-military developments can often be wanting, as can factual, objective debate that is free from politics.

To meet this need, the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP), runs the Annual Senior Officers Seminar (ASOS) on contemporary politico-military developments and current trends in multinational operations. It offers Flag Officers and high-level experts a unique opportunity for professional development and networking. Started in 2007, this course is funded by the Swiss Government and conducted in cooperation with the Partnership for Peace (PfP).


Geneva, Switzerland


This course is offered free of charge. The GCSP covers programme tuition, transportation during the seminar (transfers from/to the hotel and to the restaurant), meals and coffee breaks. All other expenses, including lodging and travel, are the responsibility of the participant. In a limited number of cases, scholarships may be available. GCSP reserves the right to modify the programme dates, location and fee at any time.
