Geopolitical Challenges in the 21st Century

Flag Officers are well supported on military issues close to their areas of responsibility, but they often receive less reliable information and input about the strategic and global context. Trustworthy updates on politico-military developments can often be wanting, as can factual, objective debate that is free from politics.
To meet this need, the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP), runs the Annual Senior Officers Seminar (ASOS) on contemporary politico-military developments and current trends in multinational operations. It offers Flag Officers and high-level experts a unique opportunity for professional development and networking. Started in 2007, this course is funded by the Swiss Government and conducted in cooperation with the Partnership for Peace (PfP).

Who should attend

The course is open to senior officers from NATO, PfP, Mediterranean Dialogue and Istanbul Cooperation Initiative countries, as well as from South Asian, East Asian and African countries.
