European Security and Defence College (ESDC)

 

The ESDC is a network college. Several national universities, academies, colleges and institutes contribute to the success of the ESDC. The network members are well known civilian and military educational and research institutions in Europe.

 

The European Security and Defence College (ESDC) was established in 2005, with the aim of providing strategic-level education in European Security and Defence Policy, now Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP). It followed thorough need analysis and experimentation phases. The creation of the ESDC was to give the Common Security and Defence Policy a training and education instrument which actively promotes a European security culture.

EU Member States participate in the effort on a voluntary basis. The training audience includes civil servants, diplomats, police officers, and military personnel from the EU Member States and EU institutions involved in CSDP. Partner countries and other international organisations are also invited to participate in some of the ESDC courses. In its first 5 years, the ESDC has developed into a key strategic CSDP training provider.

The objective of the ESDC is to provide Member States and EU Institutions with knowledgeable personnel able to work efficiently on CSDP matters. In pursuing this objective, the College makes a major contribution to a better understanding of CSDP in the overall context of CFSP and to promoting a common European security culture.

The ESDC training programme includes all training activities and comprises courses, seminars, conferences, exercises and workshops.

To register for a course, contact one of the ENLIST POCs in your Member State.

In case the POC for your Member State is not displayed in the list, please contact the ESDC, e-mail: Secretariat-ESDC@eeas.europa.eu.

Over the years, the ESDC has developed over 50 different training activities, most of them with a regional or horizontal focus. Two of the more general courses are on the Common Foreign and Security Policy itself, at newcomer level in the case of the CSDP Orientation Course and at strategic leadership level in the case of the CSPD High Level Course. The other courses/seminars/conferences focus on horizontal (e.g. peacebuilding) and regional (e.g. Western Balkan) issues. Specific training programmes for partners (e.g. Eastern Partners) and skills based courses (e.g. mediation) complement the academic programme of the college.

STANDARD CURRICULA

 

A. About the Initiative

The European Doctoral School on the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) is an initiative launched in 2017 by volunteer institutions and the European Security and Defence College to develop a range of training and provide support for doctoral research on the CSDP in the EU.

Its objective is to develop a critical mass of scientific and academic expertise that brings together supervisors and mentors and promotes the exchange of knowledge, skills and competences on European security and defence with a view to providing support for PhD level research reflecting on the CSDP.

It offers a specialized training program supplementary to the courses organized by its network institutions in their doctoral curricula and supports multi-disciplinary doctoral researches with relevant European training and environments in the following areas:

  • Cyber, new technologies and security in the CSDP context
  • Critical infrastructure, personnel and logistics in CSDP
  • Defense industry and capabilities for the CSDP
  • Partner capacity-building and external relations in the CSDP context
  • History, conflict studies, concepts, values and ethics of the CSDP
  • Defence economics, financing, education, training and leadership in the CSDP context
  • Governance, management, decision-making and deployment for CSDP

B. Governance

It is steered by a Working Group coordinated by the ESDC. All the member institutions and the associate members that have committed themselves to the principles set out in the European Doctoral School’s Charter are represented in this Working Group.

C. Who can participate?

C.1       Researchers in pursue of their PhD can access a wide range of academic, scientific and practical expertise and specialised training opportunities on the CSDP as well as fellowship programmes offered by institutions of the network.

C.2       European experts on the CSDP benefit from the networking of academic, scientific and practical expertise and experience meeting in the European Doctoral School in promoting the exchange of information, raising the profile of their work and specific research areas, and helping identify appropriate resources for doctoral students.

C.3       Training institutions with Doctoral award capabilities can partner with institutions in the CSDP field, as in‑house academic specialisation in this field represents a significant investment.

C.4       Institutions (including research and training institutes) without Doctoral award capabilities, through their participation, increase recognition of their expertise and experience in the CSDP field. They also benefit from working with doctoral researchers both during and after the research period.

D. How to participate?

D.1       Researchers in pursue of their PhD are invited to apply by submitting to the ESDC's Secretariat an application form and the respective checklist.

For the year 2018, applications can be submitted until 14 September 2018.

D.2       European experts on the CSDP, whose Institutions are members of the network, can contribute to the initiative, by participating either as research mentors or as supervisors. Membership application should be sent to the Doctoral School Working Group, in the format of the following datasheet

D.3       Training institutions with Doctoral award capabilities apply for membership to the Doctoral School Working Group.

D.4       Institutions (including research and training institutes) without Doctoral award capabilities apply for membership to the Doctoral School Working Group.

D.5       Other entities willing to actively contribute to achieving the objectives of the European Doctoral School can propose projects for joint actions to the Doctoral School Working Group.
