New PSSI's e-learning platform launched

16.10.2014

Are you interested in international relations and security affairs? Would you like to study from the comfort of your sofa? PSSI has gathered a series of lectures and uploaded them to e-learning platform SlidesLive. 

You can now watch lectures recorded at the Interagency Civilian-Military Training (ICMT) and NATO Summer School, both organized by PSSI in 2014. Available lectures are:

  • David King - Working with the Military: Lessons Learned and Best Practices (recorded at ICMT). Having over five years of professional experience managing and designing governance and security related training programs for Department of Defense (DoD), State Department, USAID and other US government agencies deploying officials to South Asia and the Middle East, David King gave lecture to students that wish to participate in high-stress/post-conflict/reconstruction mission within NATO, UN or EU missions.
  • Marcin Zaborowski - Article V. and Collective Defense (NATO Summer School). In light of recent developments, the Director of Polish Institute of Inter. Affairs (PISM) has questioned the credibility of Article V. New demands have been placed upon the concept since the end of the Cold War. While NATO is the most successful defence alliance in the world history, it requires constant reassessment to cope with the latest challenges. This has in effect widened the geographic area of collective security. If NATO is to assume its global role, it must act accordingly.
  • Petr Chalupecky - NATO Summit in 2014 (NATO Summer School). In his lecture, the Deputy Permanent Repre. of the Czech Rep. to NATO examines the challenges facing the transatlantic alliance ahead of the Cardiff Summit.
