00505 When a Crisis Hits Home: Insights from NATO about Crisis Response
Thursday, September 10, 2020
11:00AM - 12:00PM 
ucidce.zoom.us

Recent months have shown international crises can affect any (and all) of us. Whether a pandemic, natural disaster, or humanitarian emergency, such events can result in massive disruption and loss. To respond effectively to such crises, there is a need to study those entities that are already doing so. One such entity is the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). While perceived as strictly a military alliance, NATO in fact has an established track record in crisis response, developing effective capabilities while coordinating efforts with member nations and external partners. In sum, it offers an ideal example of how to deal with international crises. “NATO Crisis Management and Disaster Response” is a unique two-part course offered by the UCI Division of Continuing Education that studies NATO’s work in crisis response. In this webinar, Mr. Kyle King, the Managing Director of the Capacity Building Institute (CBI), Dr. Erik Benson, the Academic Director of CBI, and Dr. Manlio Silvestri, the International Advisor of CBI, will talk about the course and what it offers students. In addition to presenting NATO’s work, the course situates these efforts in the larger crisis response context, including key “players,” issues, and challenges. The course has a lot of “real world” applicability; this is especially evident in its capstone assignment, a NATO-developed “table-top exercise” in which students plan a response to a simulated crisis.
