Seminar on Regional Security Course Graphic

Seminar für regionale Sicherheit


Die heutige Welt kennt eine Vielzahl ungelösten Konflikten und Krisen, welche die humanitäre Sicherheit, die Existenz von Nationalstaaten und die Stabilität ganzer Regionen bedrohen. Für Europa hat dies vielfältige, schwerwiegende Folgen, wobei die Auswirkungen der Flüchtlingskrise und die Bedrohung durch Terrorisums, Politik und Gesellschaft am stärksten betreffen.


  • Provide background knowledge of strategic competition and regional security issues.
  • Contribute to the overall understanding of key security actors and their approaches / modus operandi that impact security in and around Europe.
  • Provide ideas and suggestions concerning the reinforcement of defense, deterrence and resilience.
  • Enable the exchange of ideas and best practices to enhance collective security.


The course methodology centers on daily plenary lectures—presentations by subject matter experts from an array of backgrounds—and the opportunity to discuss topics in greater depth in small seminar groups. These conversations governed by Chatham House Rules are facilitated by Marshall Center faculty and complemented by expert panels, exercises and a field study trip.

Social events supplement this academic program in order to facilitate the development of lasting relationships among the participants and GCMC Alumni bond together in our SRS alumni network which includes over 2,300 members representing 153 countries.
