Alumni Program

In the spring of 2013, PSSI launched its upgraded Alumni Program. The program is designed to connect, acknowledge, and benefit the growing PSSI “extended family”. Since the Institute’s inception in early 2002, PSSI‘s principal mission has been to build new generations of informed and security-minded policy practioners and experts in the Czech Republic and the region. It has created and supported several educational programs and public policy initiatives to realize this overarching goal.

Our alumni successfully completed the work program of one or more of four main educational initiatives: the Robinson-Martin Security Scholars Program; our co-sponsorship of Charles University‘s Master‘s Degree program in International Security Studies; the NATO Summer School; the Interagency Civilian-Military Training Program(ICMT), and Intensive Educational Course on Energy Security – in addition to a number of other smaller, less formal educational gatherings. Today, the Institute‘s "extended family“ accounts for more than 400 graduates and is growing at a fast rate.
