Testimonials

“It is great to bring CIOR and the business together so that both can learn from each other and the CIOR seminar provides an excellent opportunity.”

Jörg Andrioff

Senior Vice-President Global Network Management, DHL

“The participants in the seminar were outstanding in all respects. As a presenter, I appreciated their willingness to participate in a discussion with me, rather than just listening to my cyber lecture […]”

Captain Alfred R. Turner

USN, Military Professor, Joint Military Operations, US Naval War College

“[…] a timely and relevant ‘thinking forum’ that helps NATO professionals ask the right types of National Security questions, irrespective of specific discipline. A diverse group of NATO military professionals are now better equipped to tackle difficult disaster and contingency planning endeavors and directly impact Allied preparedness and resilience. It was a pleasure and honor to participate in CIOR Seminar.”

Colonel Joel Winton

USAFR, Chief, International Engagements, Pentagon

“[…] CIOR 2016 was both intellectually stimulating whilst also creating a spirit of camraderie. Indeed on both these counts I found my attendance at the conference extremely useful. Intellectual insights from the conference provided me with fresh impetus to finish a book on Islamic State […].”

Professor Hussein Solomon

Department of Political Studies and Governance, University of the Free State, Republic of South Africa

“A sign of an excellent workshop is when speakers learn as much from their audience as vice versa. This was my experience of the 2016 winter CIOR seminar in Bonn. […] It really rewards all participants.”

Associate Professor Andrew Mumford

School of Politics and International Relations, University of Nottingham, United Kingdom

“I had the pleasure of participating in the 2015 CIOR Seminar in Koenigswinter […]. I have kept in touch with several of the participants since then, and can recommend this forum as one of the most valuable for the study of security issues in a European context.”

Professor Nicolai Petro

Department of Political Science, Washburn Hall, University of Rhode Island, USA
