Security and Society Summer School
A Flexible Program for the Modern Age in the Heart of Central Europe
Security and Society is a wide-ranging program designed to take full advantage of Poland's many educational opportunities and provide students with a new perspective on global issues. This program is both an intensive and flexible experience - and one that is highly supportive of opportunities for personal and professional growth, including focussed research, internships, and independent travel in the region.
The Security and Society Summer School is structured to allow for individual courses, tracks (more than one course taken together), or customization. Courses will address security, cybersecurity, criminal justice, elite studies, urban planning/architecture, Jewish heritage, regional studies, and/or Polish language.
SRAS is pleased to announce that the Summer, 2016 session of Security and Society, will take place parallel to the 2016 NATO summit. The NATO summit will see the gathering of the Heads of State and Heads of Government of NATO who meet to discuss the priorities and problems facing NATO members and the world. The Polish Ministry of Defense will assist in getting students of the Crossroads IIcourse access to the summit itself. During lectures students will be divided into groups representing various interests at the summit and will participate in debates and presentations, playing as a representative of a particular country. In this way, students will learn about the issues facing the summit leaders and will become familiar with the procedures at the gathering. Students will have the opportunity to see firsthand the importance of defense and security issues in this part of the world, and indeed globally.
