Participants are exposed to a large variety of political, academic, and diplomatic points of view on relevant topics for the Black Sea regional security, and they are, accordingly, encouraged to develop an interdisciplinary perspective on the topics under discussion.


Lectures and practical exercises are balanced so as to encourage program attendees debate, perform horizon scanning, develop in-depth analysis, and create a vision for the future.


By the end of the SBSR program, participants will be able to enhance their understanding, crystalize their knowledge through debates and joint initiatives and look with confidence at the future of the region. At the same time, they will become part of a large network of allumni designed to act as a platform for regional cooperation.
