The 23rd edition of the New Issues in Security Course 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. It will enable you to better understand, not only today’s global security landscape, but emerging dynamics in order to be able to proactively respond to new challenges and opportunities as they arise, and thus shape a better future.
The 23rd NISC will provide you with a deeper understanding of contemporary threats that will prepare and empower you to have greater strategic impact in all domains. This eight-week course also offers you a unique opportunity to interact with a diverse group of participants and experts from a wide range of sectors (government, international organisations, civil society, the private sector and academia)
This course offers you a unique opportunity to:
- Strengthen your understanding of the rapidly changing global security environment
- Acquire tools to leverage your professional capacity
