21th WINTER COURSE

"Fighting Terrorism, Protecting Human Rights"



ANDALO (TRENTO) - ITALY

6-13 JANUARY 2008





ISODARCO has organized residential courses on global security since 
1966 primarily in Italy but also in China, Germany and Jordan with 
the generous support of private foundations and International and 
National Institutions and Organizations. The courses are intended for 
those who would like to play a more active and technically competent 
role in the field of international conflicts as well as those who 
already have a professional interest and experience in this field. 
The courses are intensive, interactive and interdisciplinary in 
focus. The subject matters span not only the technical and scientific 
dimensions of these problems but also their sociological and 
political implications.

This will be the eighth time an Isodarco course will examine the 
problem of non-state violence. Courses on this topic were organized 
in 1974 and 1978 when only a few specialists were concerned with the 
issues of non-state or sub-state violence. Now, after the dramatic 
events of the years 2001 and 2002, Isodarco has returned to the 
discussion of these problems devoting to them the last five winter 
courses.
