Due to the ongoing current COVID-19 travel restrictions, also this year’s Program on Applied Security Studies (PASS 2021) was changed to a much shorter version (PASS MMC) and will be offered in TWO parts. The first part will be a virtual / online course from September 7 – September 17, followed by a three-week intensive resident course in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany from September 20 to October 8. Timeframe 19/20 September will be travel days/arrival day in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
For “Red Zone Countries” this course will be offered as a full five weeks virtual event with selected topics (mainly lectures, Q&A, panel discussion but no one day field study and seminars; seminar participation will be only on a voluntary basis in a special virtual seminar break out room if requested).
The Marshall Center’s objective is to bring together the best and most capable rising defense and security experts from a variety of government ministries. Each course is geared toward a specific combination of mid- to senior-level career military officers and civilian government officials of equivalent rank. We strive for a balanced and diverse participant body, policy-makers and practitioners, men and women.
Participants greatly benefit from our programs and the opportunity to network with like-minded professionals as well as add value to an ongoing dialog on security and defense related topics. Our goal is connect the right people to create a positive change for a more stable world.
