The IHEDN (Institut des Hautes Etudes de la Défense Nationale), the French interdepartemental training center on security, defense political and strategical issues, is organising a sensitization/training cycle on JSSR between 27 – 29 October 2016, in Brussels, within the framework of the European Security and Defence College (ESDC).
The training, intended for representatives of European Member states, will be focussed on the EU’s JSSR approach. The educational approach will be both theoretical and practical, based on cases studies and lessons learned.
The main objective of the workshop is to deliver an overview of the key SSR policies, principles and actors and how to adapt them within an EU mission’s context.
A part of the session will be devoted to a current case study underlining the concrete difficulties to implement the mentioned principles in the field.
