GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany (March 2, 2015) – James Howcroft, director of the Program in Terrorism and Security Studies, talks with a participant Feb. 25 during the first day of #PTSS 15-03 at the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies here.

Howcroft went over how to build a combating terrorism strategy this morning, March 2, and the 72 participants from 54 countries are now working on building their strategies until this afternoon, when they will hear a lecture on Lone Actor Terrorism by Dr. Sam Mullins, Marshall Center’s professor of counterterrorism.

The PTSS course addresses numerous aspects of a threat that confronts nations around the globe. The four-week course is designed for government officials, military officers and police administrators currently working in mid- and upper- level management positions of counterterrorism organizations throughout the world. The mission of the Marshall Center, as a vital instrument of German-American cooperation, is to create a more stable security environment by advancing democratic institutions and relationships; promoting active, peaceful, whole-of-government approaches to address transnational and regional security challenges; and creating and enhancing enduring partnerships worldwide.
