The High Studies in Security and Defence, organized jointly with Belgium’s Royal Defence College, offer multidisciplinary training based on a holistic view of security and meant for a multisectoral public (foreign affairs, development cooperation, defence, academia, NGOs, police, justice, industry, political circles, etc.).
These are structured around:
-10 monthly residential seminars of two days, each focussing on a specific issue;
-10 visits to Belgian institutions active in the field of security and defence.
The aim of the Higher Studies in Security and Defence is to better equip officials from various sectors of the wide security and defence field than to provide regular academic training and to increase staff performance.
