Mapping and Responding to Today’s Security Environment to Shape a Better Future
The 22nd edition of the New Issues in Security Course (NISC) focuses on new and re-emerging security challenges arising from a rapidly changing global environment. The course examines the evolution of security, with a special focus on human security, the interlinkages among security-related issues, and the value of adopting a more forward-looking approach to security.
