  • Security policy dimensions of conflicts and peace processes
  • Key actors in international military missions
  • Mission-related norms and concepts, including security sector reform (SSR), civil-military cooperation, and women, peace and security (UNSCR 1325).

The programme’s main client is the Swedish Ministry of Defence.
