The course brings together 26 students from different study fields who study not only in Jurisprudence or Security related programs, but also in various leading and management programs.
Security issues are becoming more and more relevant today in the Baltic and Scandinavian countries. We are facing new challenges in terms of migration, conflicts that are rooted in cultural and religious differences, cyber attacks and other threats to our security. Therefore, it is more and more urgent for educational institutions to train capable and knowledgeable security specialists who are able to deal with these new threats and challenges.
"The society more and more understands the actuality of the field of security, and students from various fields also want to listen to the recommendations of professionals and understand the guidelines for obtaining a safe environment. Security is one of the most important pillars in human development, because only when we understand It, we - people, we are able to develop our work, rest and, in general the living environment. Thus we protect ourselves from life-disadvantageous events, for example, by being able to project the mutability of environment around (path, buildings, people, animals, rain, frost, wind, etc.), to observe its development, to be able to analyze the information obtained and utilize previous experience of each person, we can feel safe or safer.
Human psychology is designed so that only in a safe environment can we progress individually and society as a whole " explains Vilnis Veinbergs- the Director of the program" Organization Security " of Turiba University and the initiator of the Nordplus Intensive Course.
