Europe and the wider world face complex, multifaceted and fundamental security challenges at an ever-expansive scale. Whether it is ‘new threats’ such as cybersecurity, the impact of environmental degradation on security and livelihoods, the societal impacts of the impending ‘robotics and artificial intelligence revolution’ or the resurgence of ‘classical threats’, such as nuclear proliferation, arms races, regional conflicts, information warfare, hybrid warfare and the challenges of peacekeeping, peacebuilding and conflict resolution, the next generation of students and analysts must be literate in the analytical tools and policy-oriented solutions to a widerange of security problems.
To this end, the Global Governance Institute (GGI), the Belgian Royal Military Academy, and a network of senior scholars and policy-makers from international organizations (such as NATO, the European Union and the United Nations) have teamed up to deliver a unique 10-day intensive summer school in the heart of Europe. This summer school brings together theoretical and policy-oriented perspectives from peace studies, security studies and strategic studies. Students will learn first-hand from some of the leading scholars and senior practitioners about major security challenges and how to apply concrete policy solutions in an integrative manner.
