2) interact with recognized academic and security experts;
3) introduce students to careers in security policy-making in private and public sectors;
4) introduce students to the fundamentals of policy analysis in addressing security issues; and
5) develop a self-sustaining network of students with competence and interest in security studies.

Students completing the workshop will be awarded a Certificate in International Security Studies.
