Brunssum, the Netherlands – Monday 26 March 22 Masters Students from Maastricht University accompanied by their Course Director, Dorcas Mbuvi, visited the headquarters in order to gain a deeper comprehension of NATO and, specifically, the ways in which the military interact with the civilian community.
Lieutenant Colonels Jose Rodriguez from JFC Brunssum's Civil/Military Plans, Policy and Operations Section and Marco Schmidl from the Public Affairs Office, together with Mr Barry Mellor (Deputy Chief of Public Affairs) briefed the visitors and participated in a highly interactive question and answer session.
The students are pursuing the "Risk & Vulnerability Specialization" i.e. one of the six tracks available within an MSc in Public Policy and Human Development. The MSc programme is jointly offered by the United Nations University (UNU-MERIT) and the Maastricht Graduate School of Governance (part of Maastricht University).
The visit from Maastricht University was a fruitful exchange of knowledge. JFC Brunssum welcomes similar visits from university and school students into the future.
