Wijegunaratne; Vice-Chancellor KDU, Rear Admiral Jagath Ranasinghe, and His Excellency Heinz Walker-Nederkoorn, Ambassador of Switzerland to the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka and to the Republic of Maldives.

Once again, the course, perfectly organised by the GCSP and the office of the Chief of Defense Staff (OCDS), with the support of the General Sir John Kotelawala Defence University (KDU), had a great start. Once again, I had the chance to meet great participants!]

[REPOST] Swiss professional officers at the GCSP and Brussels gather for one-week course on international security

Training high-potential military officers to cope with their future challenges is an important task for the Swiss Armed Forces. The new Advanced Education Training Course 3 (Weiterausbildungslehrgang 3 – WAL 3), an 8-week module organized by the Swiss Military Academy (MILAK), is part of this approach.

The GCSP has been tasked to organize a one-week segment dedicated to the international context. The course director, Colonel (GS) Christian Bühlmann, Head of the Regional Perspectives Programmes, focussed the module on International Organizations relevant to Swiss Security. He was expertly supported by Ms Mélanie Chaves.
