CTTN and HR/ROL Courses Begin at the Perry Center

March 12, 2019

On Monday, 18 March 2019, the residential portion of two courses, Combating Transnational Threat Networks (CTTN) and Strategic Implications of Human Rights and Rule of Law (HR/ROL), will begin at the Perry Center. CTTN and HR/ROL convene over 90 senior military and civilian professionals representing 15 different countries in the Western Hemisphere.

Directed by Perry Center Professor Celina Realuyo and facilitated by professors Dr. Boris Saavedra and Mr. Ricardo Gómez-Hecht, the CTTN course replaces the Perry Center’s Combatting Transnational Organized Crime and Illicit Networks in the Americas (CTOC) course of previous years. The course aims to deepen participants’ understanding and analysis of Transnational Criminal Organizations (TCOs) and the defense and security threats they pose to the Americas.

Led by Perry Center Professor Dr. William Godnick and facilitated by Professor Pat Paterson and Mr. Walter Earle, the HR/ROL course is designed for both government and non-government professionals to engage in the formulation, implementation, and evaluation of public policies concerning human rights or international humanitarian law. The course seeks to deepen participants’ understanding and analysis of complex topics of human rights, the rule of law, international humanitarian law, military professionalism, the law of armed conflict, and transnational justice, among others.
