The Interdisciplinary Nature of Political Advising
Political advisors are instrumental in the decision-making processes of peace and security. Their effectiveness is of fundamental importance both on the ground and at an international level. Their duties require them to synthesise information rapidly, to develop a comprehensive understanding of the context and key issues at hand, and to convey that understanding and analysis to their institutions at varying levels, while building and nurturing meaningful relationships. This course builds the skill sets and networks that political advisors need to carry out their work more efficiently and effectively.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
The course is designed for political advisors and political affairs officers working in government ministries, international institutions, or diplomatic missions, either in capitals or in the field. The course is also open to those interested in becoming a political advisor.
