The first “Train the trainers” virtual training on maritime scenarios took place on 22 September 2020. The event informed of possible maritime hybrid operations in the current security environment and provided an opportunity to identify potential political and legal mitigation tools against maritime hybrid situations. Furthermore, it presented a structure for policy and concept development.
The training brought together practitioners from many Hybrid CoE Participating States including both legal and policy planning officials from several ministries and related agencies with connection to maritime issues. The event utilised realistic scenarios and encouraged participants to deliberate their respective responses. Future “Train the trainers” events will be provided at a later stage.
