The Chair Group IR & Security Studies participates in the BA-program International Relations & International Organization. Especially in the 3rd year, Research Modules are offered which allow students to deepen the dimension of security studies.

The Chair Group is responsible for the specialization program International Security within the MA-program IRIO. The program combines theory and practice. It provides space for a three month internship, offers a general introduction in Advanced Theory of International Relations, offers Core Research Modules on various themes, and finally allows MA-thesis research in individually preferred directions. You can read more about the programme options here.

From 2012-2017, the Chair Group also organized the annual international interdisciplinary Groningen Energy Summer School for PhD students. The Summer School takes an interdisciplinary approach to the societal and technological dimensions of the energy transition. By combining a broad range of disciplines, the school has offered a unique opportunity to PhD students to become aware of different aspects of energy transition, to develop novel insights, and to create synergy in approaches to energy transition.
