Participants in the program will have the opportunity to choose whether they wish to attend individual modules, or to attend the entire three module program. In this way, the program provides flexibility according to the main interest of the participants.

Each module involves one week of full-time training in Geneva. Participants who are accepted must confirm their availability for the entire period of one, two or three modules and attend all sessions during the module(s).


The program is led by a team of diverse course directors, experts and leaders. It takes a multifaceted interactive approach to learning and will focus on three main dimensions:

  • In-depth classroom analysis of security policy issues through plenary discussions, case studies and working visits to International Geneva institutions.
  • Individual and group skills enhancement through workshops and simulations.

We suggest participants stay at the InterContinental Hotel Geneva, given the proximity to the program venue
