International Security (English and Dutch edition)

The COVID-19 pandemic is a threat to our global health, economy and social cohesion that we were not prepared for. New geopolitical rather than rules-based considerations define relationships between for example Russia, the United States, China, and the EU, which thus reshapes European security and defence policies and priorities. What is driving these changes and in what direction are we heading? Go beyond the headlines together with experts, practitioners and policymakers.

  • 8 training days
  • Dutch edition 4-23 March 2021
  • English edition 20-29 October 2021
