Policy Program | "Security Concepts and Conflict Management: The Roles of NATO, the UN, and the EU"
The Aspen Institute Germany co-hosted a summer school near Tbilisi, Georgia on “Security Concepts and Conflict Management: The Roles of NATO, the UN, and the EU“ in cooperation with the Free University of Tbilisi, and the Public Diplomacy Division of NATO, as well as with strong support of Prof. Dr. Peter Schmidt of Ludwig-Maximilians University Munich and Lieutenant General (ret.) Jürgen Bornemann, former Director of NATO’s International Military Staff. After an official opening by Alex Petriashvili, State Minister of Georgia for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration, the four-day summer school aimed at giving Georgian students and young professionals an insight into the development of security concepts since the 1990s. Lectures and discussions on different case studies, inter alia the crises in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Libya, Mali, Syria, and Ukraine provided a practical understanding of conflict management. A scenario workshop, in which participants had to come up with a solution to the scenario of a worsening situation in Libya taking into consideration the different and at times opposing interests of a series of international actors, concluded the summer school.
