Why should I participate?
The guideline for the course is “Content, Culture, Social”. The intensive schedule allows for serious varied practical work (Exercises, analytical methods, panels, discussions etc..), specific cultural aspects of the region (protocol, security aspects etc..) and social (receptions, official lunch etc..)
The Defence and Diplomacy course focuses on the international aspects of the military, defence and security aspects of diplomacy. It is a pre-deployment practical training for country representatives dealing with security issues, primarily designed for Defence Attachés as complementary to the national training.
Future practitioners with the right background in the right position enabled with the right skills.
