The upcoming summer we are launching the 3rd Vilnius Summer School and would like to invite students or any other persons who might be interested in the courses Vilnius Summer School provides. We can proudly announce that the first two summer schools on military, cyber and energy security were a great success! Therefore, in the Summer of 2019 we are coming back with one additional course on countering organized crime.
We would be grateful, if you could share the information below with those who might be interested.
Vilnius Summer School is a week-long academic program dedicated to facilitate dialogue and in-depth analysis on a variety of security issues at national, regional and global levels.
We can offer four separate courses on military, cyber and energy security, as well as on countering organized crime.
The courses on military and cyber security will take place on 6-13 July 2019:
- Military Security course gives you a chance to get in-depth understanding about current threats the Eastern flank of Europe faces and the counter-measures it applies to deter aggressors and defend both – regional and national – security interests.
- Cyber Security course provides an opportunity to get to know more about today’s cyber security world, including emerging cyber-threats and increasing cyber-attacks. The course addresses legal, political and technical aspects of cyber security. It also gives a chance to get thorough understanding about cyber-defence and possible countermeasures, get involved into discussion about international and regional cyber security issues and strengthen awareness about existing cyber-threats.
The two following courses on energy security and countering organized crime will take place on 13-20 July 2019:
- Energy Security course provides you with an opportunity to gain knowledge about global energy tendencies and perspectives and how they correlate with regional and national developments of the European and the Baltic gas and electricity markets, as well as the remaining challenges the Baltic region faces in its efforts to enhance its energy security.
- Countering Organized Crime course seeks to present a tentative account of organized crime in the Baltic region and beyond as well as providing some recommendations on how to enhance regional cooperation in countering these threats. Organized crime will be analyzed from different perspectives: as illegal activity, as a legacy of Soviet system, as a political instrument. In addition, different methods to counter organized crime will be introduced.
We promise engaging studies, the best experts and scientists of their field, international environment and leisure activities!
Why should anyone be interested in Vilnius Summer School? The capital of Lithuania, Vilnius, is located near the geographic center of Europe. Such geographic location often leads to situations when Lithuania becomes the spot of clashes between the West and the East, especially in terms of security issues. The courses of Vilnius Summer School are devoted to discuss different aspects of security issues, including military, cyber, energy security and organized crime. Choose a field of security you are interested the most, join Vilnius Summer School and be in the swim!
When? The courses on military and cyber security will take place on 6-13 July 2019 and the two following course on energy security and countering organized crime will take place on 13-20 July 2019.
