The Clingendael Academy is continuing its long-term cooperation on Defense Diplomacy with the Joseph Kruzel Training Centre (JKTC) in Skopje, North Macedonia.
It started off in February of this year by providing a cutting-edge Defense Diplomacy training on International Cyber Security. The aim of this three-day programme was for participants to further their insight into new and existing cyber security challenges, explore avenues for international cooperation to mitigate cyber threats, practice with tools used in international governance processes, and make the link to Macedonian assets and capabilities. The course was prepared in close collaboration with the JKTC, with two prominent cyber-experts from the Macedonian Ministry of Defense who elaborated on the cyber threat landscape of North Macedonia and their national cyber governance structures.
This was the first module of the broader course on International Security and Governance, which, over the course of 2023, will dive deeper into the most recent trends and developments in International Security with a specific focus on Cyber Security and Cyber Governance.
