Programme Description

The COVID-19 pandemic has created new vulnerabilities for hybrid action in the EU: fresh thinking and innovative ideas are needed concerning ways to optimise the EU’s policies and approaches vis-à-vis hybrid threats.

Beginning with a focus on those critical gaps and vulnerabilities brought to the fore by the pandemic,the goal of this training is to understand and explore the EU’s hybrid threats in an interactive manner. It is designed to encourage the deep comprehension needed to critically analyse different types of hybrid threats, their backgrounds, and root causes in order to evaluate therisk presented at the EU level.

The intent is to uncover their transnational linkages for examination and debate in order to facilitate the assessment of existing policies while recommending any needed reforms; all with an aim for enhancing the EU’s future state of preparedness.
