Invitation to Changing Security and Hybrid Threats Course

The University of Jyväskylä (JYU) is organizing a summer course, “Changing Security and Hybrid Threats”, in cooperation with the European Centre of Excellence for Countering Hybrid Threats (Hybrid CoE). The course will enhance students’ understanding of the rapidly changing security environment in today’s Europe. During the course, students will get familiar with cyber and information influencing. They will also learn more about military hybrid threats and how state actors such as Russia and China as well as non-state actors fit into the picture. Through lectures and workshop case studies, students will study the strategic motivation behind the hybrid threats, how to identify vulnerabilities, and how to build resilience against such threats. The course will be interactive and encourage the students to think critically about hybrid threats. In addition to the main lectures, there will be several guest lecturers on themes such as geopolitics and security in history.
