The Civil-Military Responses to Terrorism course recently concluded at the Institute for Security Governance with another cohort of participants from around the globe. 

This course provides a thorough understanding of terrorism in all its forms, with considerable emphasis on strategy formulation and international cooperation. The program uses case studies and a tabletop exercise to stimulate thoughtful discussion, thus providing participants with the insight needed by decision makers and their advisors to design successful strategies that defeat terrorist networks, protect citizens and property, and address the root causes of terrorism. 

Upon conclusion of this course, participants can:

♦ Develop a holistic understanding of terrorism as one of many transnational threats governments face 
♦ Complete a tabletop exercise featuring a fictional country facing two different kinds of terrorism
♦ Articulate how to make ethical decisions when facing an unethical adversary  
♦ Think through and develop strategies that respect and cross traditional ministerial boundaries  
♦ Ascertain degrees of risk and how to measure the effectiveness of a nation’s response to that risk
