The Hybrid Defense Senior Executive Live Course is an exclusive event currently hosted online due to COVID-19 restrictions. The course is aimed at familiarizing current and future senior leaders – US government officials, civilian and military leaders, graduate-level researchers and academia, – with the current status of Hybrid Warfare worldwide and the Western (US/NATO) responses to it in the current decade and beyond. The course objective is to help those senior leaders develop critical thinking about Hybrid Warfare that would enable them to design tailored responses as part of the course exercises and group discussions. The live course includes complimentary access to the online course materials and recorded lectures.
Hybrid warfare is the preferred method in the 21st century for challenging the US hegemony overseas, threatening US allies, and disrupting the established international order by revisionist and aspirant Great and regional powers such as Russia, China, Iran, as well as others. While the various aspects pertaining to the hybrid warfare doctrines and tactics are being researched, studied and written about – including information warfare, cyber warfare, subversion and espionage, etc. – this critically important phenomenon is still not being taught in a holistic fashion. The Hybrid Defense Academy aims to fill this void by offering a comprehensive overview of this nefarious and subversive global challenge, by offering an in-depth analysis of all functional domains of Hybrid Warfare, their geographical scope and the regions they encompass, and most importantly – their interconnected nature – from the Baltic States and Ukraine to Syria, Libya and Venezuela; and from the Arctic Ocean to the South China Sea.
