22.06.2016

Are you interested in international and domestic security affairs? Would you like to become a well-equipped professional capable of understanding the complex national security problems and foreign policy issues of the 21st century? Apply to the Robinson-Martin Security Scholars Program (RMSSP) 2016/2017.

The program is currently comprised of a series of lectures and interactive seminars led by distinguished senior current and former security policy professionals from the Czech Republic and a number of other countries, including the U.S. The content and sequencing of over twenty lectures provides a unique opportunity to engage in serious discourse over breaking global developments with renowned policy luminaries in small group settings (approximately 10-15 students).

It offers highly qualified and motivated students from Czech universities the opportunity to take part in a program covering numerous security-related issues. Whether it is traditional intelligence and the role of NATO/EU in today's new security environment, tackling organized crime, the perils of humanitarian work, the trajectory of cyber security, or emerging issues such as the intricacies of economic statecraft and information warfare, the RMSSP lectures encourage its students to develop their own areas of specialization. The RMSSP syllabus 2015/2016 is available.

In order to apply, please send your structured CV and short motivation letter to ditmar@pssi.cz by September 7 (with a subject line "RMSSP 2016/2017").

In the motivation letter you should describe what security-related topic should be presented during the RMSSP lecture, why and add 3 discussion points (e.g. the role of OSCE in eastern Ukraine). Selected candidates will be invited to interview.
