Methodology

This one-week course is comprised of four modules which complement each other in the understanding of NATO’s security environment. Within each module, discrete subject topics may vary depending on the current worldwide security situation. Each lecture ends with an interactive Q & A to enable students to develop and consolidate their understanding of the subject topic. Panel discussions will be used to enable in-depth discussions with more than one lecturer, thereby allowing contrasting viewpoints to be aired. Course material (lecture notes) will be available through the NATO School portal upon completion for reference.
