This is the first tailor-made program for graduate students and young professionals with an academic background in e.g. law, security studies, international relations, conflict studies, who are interested in pursuing careers in counter-terrorism and related fields of work.
The various lectures will be given by top-level speakers working in the field of counter-terrorism and international law, ranging from academic researchers to judges and civil society leaders. The program will also include a number of side events and visits to learn more about the organizations and individuals involved in countering terrorism.
