The participants originated from ministries of foreign affairs, defence, interior and civil society from countries in wider Europe, the Caucasus, Central Asia, the Middle East, North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, South and East Asia with Sri Lanka and Botswana represented for the first time.
The ESC is designed to deepen the participants’ understanding of the security policy challenges relative to Europe. The course examines European security within a regional and global context thus better assessing the interconnectedness of transnational threats and responses. The ESC places equal importance on the study of substantive issues, skills enhancement and the development of a community of security policy professionals among the participants.
We wish the graduates of the 22nd ESC 2018 continued success in their future endeavours, and look forward to our continued relationship with them through the GCSP Alumni Network and events.
