1st ITC meets 1st LISC

A unique alumni meeting

The alumni of the first ITC – International Training Course in Security Policy (1986-1987) will meet the 1st LISC – Leadership in International Security Course participants for a lunch and an active exchange on “How International Security has Evolved from 1986 to 2016”. 

The International Training Course in Security Policy (ITC)  was created in 1986 and developed a global reputation for learning and expertise on current and future security challenges throughout its 29 years. Harnessing those strengths, the GCSP announced the regeneration of the ITC as the Leadership in International Security Course (LISC) for its 30th edition, which is currently taking place. This regeneration reflected the evolution and changes in security policy, for security policy professionals, and their institutions.

The new Leadership in International Security Course (LISC) has maintained excellence in learning, opportunities to engage with high-level experts, and the emphasis on networking amongst peers from across a range of ministries, agencies and institutions. It has also placed much greater emphasis on new learning methodologies and on leadership, recognised as a key competence for security policy professionals, and the most important factor shaping contemporary international security relations. This emphasis on leadership runs throughout the course in its substantive content, skills development, and networking.

Since 2006, the course has formed the basis for the Master of Advanced Studies in International and European Security, jointly run with the Global Studies Institute (GSI) of the University of Geneva. This MAS programme has received the highest level of accreditation awarded to degrees in Switzerland, as a result receiving automatic equivalence in most countries worldwide, currently recruiting for its 2016/17 edition.
