AND RESEARCH CENTRES
At the request of a Government, and following a coordinated strategic needs analysis, we create tailored solutions ranging from simple specialized training courses to designing and implementing comprehensive excellence and research centres.
We focus on creating and organizing Level 2 and Level 3 cross-functional courses that include both military and civilian experiences. In the French system, Level 2 equates to École de Guerre (General Staff College) education, whereas Level 3 courses are available at the IHEDN (Institute for Higher Defence Studies) and the CHEM (Centre des Hautes Etudes Militaires).
Our programmes equip senior military personnel with the political and strategic knowledge they need to start a new career. Graduates leave fully trained, with a deeper understanding of all aspects of crisis management. Cycles available in formats ranging from 5 to 10 months. Training modules mainly focus on complex multinational operations – including procedures and processes. Our goal is to meet and exceed the academic standards and expectations set in particular by the United Nations and the European Union.
Other training courses are available for elected officials, civilian decision-makers, civilian and military executives (Defence, Interior and Foreign Affairs) who serve their country in the fields of Security and Defence.
KEY ACADEMIC GOALS:
Develop a comprehensive set of critical skills in preparation for operational leadership in complex and changing environments
Develop a research practice and foster connections with other partners (as a secondary activity that complements training programmes)
AND RESEARCH CENTRES :
The Themiis Institute is simultaneously setting up research partnerships with various training centres and schools. Our goal is to develop local forward-looking thought leadership focused on defence, security, and partnership issues.
The works of our CHESD (college for higher strategy and defence studies) students in Kinshasa were first published by L’Harmattan Editions in 2017, under the title Stratégies Africaines de Sécurité (Security Strategies in Africa).
