Postponed to 2021 - Building Arms Control Capacities in the Middle East and North Africa Region - Amman 2020
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic and for participants’ and staff’s health and safety, we had to postpone this course to April 2021 (to be confirmed). Current applications will remain valid until then. Sign up now to be informed when the next edition will take place.
In a region prone to military responses to security challenges, awareness of past arms control efforts and initiatives is crucial to crafting effective ways of addressing security threats. This course aims to build the capacity of a new generation of arms control practitioners who will be involved in the implementation of international disarmament and non-proliferation instruments in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Thinking critically and innovatively is crucial, as this region in particular requires taking into consideration the interrelationships between arms proliferation and a wide range of other security challenges, such as terrorism, state failure, organised crime, uncontrolled migration, and technological developments.
The course is designed for both:
- civilian and,
- military government officials
- who are in charge of arms control policy at the decision-making and implementation levels.
This course is provided free of tuition charges. All other expenses, including lodging and travel, are the responsibility of the participant. The GCSP reserves the right to modify the programme dates, location and fee at any time.
In a limited number of cases, scholarships may be available.
