Call for Application: “Early Warning and Facing Rumors” Course

Posted on

The BA Center for Strategic Studies organizes a course entitled “Early Warning and Facing Rumors”, which aims to train participants to understand the method of developing early warning systems in the political, security, economic, and social areas. These systems are considered among the most efficient mechanisms to maintain national security, and, if applied properly, they can be used to prevent or reduce crises, as well as predict their related rumors in order to achieve stability, which is one of the basic requirements for sustainable development.

The course aims to achieve a number of goals, including the following:

  • Outlining the importance of early warning systems in the preservation of national security.
  • Demonstrating the methods of designing early warning systems, and the basics that should be considered when planning them.
  • Explaining the best ways in which early warning mechanisms can be applied to achieve their goals.
  • Highlighting the role of information monitoring and transfer in early warning systems.
  • Explaining the ways in which early warning systems can be used to predict rumors.
