Since 2003 the Federal Academy for Security Policy has been conducting the seminar series “National Preventive Security Measures”. This is done in cooperation with the Academy for Crisis Management, Emergency Planning and Civil Protection (AKNZ), the training institution of the Federal Office for Civil Protection and Disaster Response. The series regularly comprises a one-week seminar in the second half of September and a two-day “follow-up” event in April/May of the following year.

The series is jointly coordinated by the Federal Ministry of Defence, the Federal Ministry of the Interior and the Federal Foreign Office. Advertising for the seminar and the enrolment of participants are the responsibility of the coordinating ministries. The participants of the two preceding years are invited to attend the “follow-up” event. The objective of the series of seminars on „National Preventive Security Measures“ is to discuss at inter-ministerial and inter-organizational level, on the basis of the current security situation, changes in risks and adaptations of

  • the organization of national preventive security measures,
  • the decision-making processes, and
  • hazard prevention and hazard defence measures.

In this context the exchange that takes place between the participants, creating a basis and a link for a more intensive inter-ministerial and interagency cooperation in the different fields of professional activity, receives particular support.

The seminar is directed at executive personnel and decision-makers from the field of civil and military crisis management. Attendance by the following is particularly welcomed:

  • higher-level civil servants from the supreme Federal and “Länder” authorities and their subordinate agencies, or employees in comparable positions,
  • executive members of corporate bodies and institutions under public law,
