The advancing climate change and its consequences for mankind are already foreseeable. While extreme weather events are taking on new dimensions worldwide and droughts and drought are posing ever new challenges to the water supply in some parts of the world, more and more urban areas and living environments are reaching their limits due to rising sea levels. All these developments also have an impact on the security of states. But how exactly does the interplay between climate change and security policy work? What connections have we already been able to see in the past and what developments will security policy structures have to adapt to in the future?
It is these and other questions that the exercise will address. In addition to regular sessions led by Stefan Lukas, Middle East Analyst and Director of Studies in Berlin, visits to the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) will also be offered and other speakers will be invited.
Credit will be given for essays or short briefings, depending on the number of participants.
