Civil-Military Approaches to Maritime Security: Africa Regional Course

The Center for Civil-Military Relations (CCMR) offers a two-week custom-designed Expanded International Education and Training (IMET) and Combating Terrorism Fellowship Program (CTFP) course entitled "Civil-Military Approaches to Maritime Security." The course is conducted in Monterey, California for candidates from all IMET and CTFP recipient countries. The intended audience is mid- to senior-level military, civilian (typically from the ministries of Defense, Interior, Justice, or Foreign Affairs), and law enforcement agency members involved in the decision-making process surrounding national and international security issues. For this course, the most appropriate officials will be those having some responsibility for maritime security issues. Ordinarily, participants hold ranks of Lieutenant (O-3) through Rear Admiral and their civilian equivalents, depending on source country arrangements. CCMR tailors each of its courses to the specific conditions and requirements of the selected audience. This program is ten days in duration, focusing on the strategic and operational levels. It is not a course in maritime security tactics.

Focus

The Maritime Security Program at the Center for Civil-Military Relations (CCMR), headquartered at the Naval Postgraduate School has provided exceptional programs to hundreds of civilian officials and military officers from many countries over the  last ten years. Using a faculty of academicians, retired military, coast guard, law enforcement, and civilian agency personnel, CCMR delivers programming that strikes the right balance between the theoretical and the practical.

Specific objectives include:

  • Help participants think through the challenges of preventing and responding to maritime security threats and terrorism with democratic tools at a strategic level
  • Multi-dimensional, innovative solutions to maritime security threats
  • Integrate classroom exercises to extend learning
  • Emphasize interagency (inter-entity) and multi-national approaches

CCMR addresses tough questions about national, regional and global Maritime Security

  • What can governments do to enhance the security of their maritime domain while also allowing for the efficient movement of people, goods and services?
  • How can governments conduct maritime risk assessments that will allow them to prioritize limited resources and develop comprehensive strategies and policies?
  • How can governments best protect their critical maritime infrastructure?
  • How should governments integrate their military, law enforcement and other civilian agencies with maritime security responsibilities?
  • What collective measures can regional nations take to prevent or minimize transitional maritime threats like terrorism, piracy, illicit trafficking and illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing?
