Purpose

ISODARCO has been organizing residential courses on global security since 1966. The courses are intended for people already having a professional interest in the problems of international conflicts, or for those who would like to play a more active and technically competent role in this field.

The courses have an interdisciplinary nature, and their subject matters extend from the technical and scientific side of the problems to their sociological and political implications.

This will be the fourth time an ISODARCO course will focus on the problem of Non-State Violence. Courses on this topic were organized in 1974 and 1978 when Non-State or Sub-State violence had the limited attention of specialists.

Now, after the dramatic events of the year 2001 and 2002, Isodarco has returned to the discussion of these problems organizing the 2003 and 2004 winter courses.
