The Centre for Security Studies, Sarajevo (CSS), in cooperation with the Peace Support Operations Training Centre (PSOTC) – NATO/Partnership Education and Training Centre in Bosnia and Herzegovina has organized “EU Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP)” Seminar on the 17th and 18th of October 2012 at PSOTC premises, Camp Butmir.

The Seminar is organized as a part of Euro-Atlantic Security Course. The aim of the Course is to enhance the understanding of the aspects of the EU approach in PKO as the EU with its missions gradually becomes a more important global actor in providing necessary measures in promoting democracy and crisis management. This was also a good opportunity to share lessons identified and experienced from EU missions in this area. The Seminar is designed mostly for the military officers deployed in PKO missions on senior or decision making level, as well for the post-graduate scholars from the universities from BH.

This seminar is organized as a part of the CSS project titled „Support to institutional building of PSOTC in increasing their capacities for smooth transition to local ownership“. This project is aimed to support PSOTC in developing capacity and expertise in areas of SSR, Rule of Low and CSDP. Project is generously supported by Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
