Our seminars take place in Paris, Aix-en-Provence and Berlin. The participants come from different professional backgrounds. They share a strong interest for defence and strategy-related questions (civil servants, soldiers, diplomats, people working in the industry sector, university researchers, politicians, etc.). During the two-day seminars, participants attend lectures and round tables with renowned experts in defence policy and international relations. They are divided in working groups each composed of around 15 participants and two or three speakers. These formats promote the participants’ interest in the lecture/panel subjects and encourage them to actively engage in the seminar.
