The Seminar on Regional Security (SRS) provides national security professionals with a comprehensive over-view on security dynamics and conflict resolution strategies within the European-Eurasian region. It does so by using case studies in which regional crises as a result of violent conflict occurred. In contrast to the traditional global perspective, this seminar shifts the focus to a regional outlook on the analysis of approaches and best practice examples towards peace and security, in the context of comprehensive international missions and a multitude of local, regional and international actors.
The three-week seminar thereby aims at systematically analyzing the character of the example crises, the impact of regional actors, as well as the effects of international assistance measures.
SRS will be offered annually. Each session will concentrate on one or two traditionally unstable regions - the Western Balkans and the South Caucasus, looking at actual conflicts in the regions and efforts to achieve stability.
The course will be conducted primarily in English and Russian; if there is adequate request the course will also be offered in German.
