Security and Crisis Management

Already over

The demands on security and crisis management for German NGOs are high. In this course we will have a look at our own security and crisis management concepts and benefit from the knowledge of our experienced trainers and the good practices of other participants. You will register for an online series including two online seminars and (if the situation allows) one face-to-face seminar on security and crisis management. In between, you will apply your knowledge by discussing each others’ security and crisis management concept with one other participant in a peer-to-peer phase.

The first two online sessions will be held on 09 and 23 February. The final event of the series will take place on 16 and 17 March and will be conducted either online or -depending on the pandemic situation- in Hannover. The course is taught in English and includes regular breaks.
