The security planning of the Czech Republic is partially directed by our legislation. Students will deal especially with mutual links among individual planning processes. The processes include mainly emergency planning, crisis planning, civil emergency planning, recovery planning, recovery loss prevention planning, continuity maintenance planning and critical infrastructure protection planning. General familiarization with the state defence planning is part of the subject, too. Students will also make themselves acquainted with essential EU and NATO documents in the area of non-military security planning.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
The graduates will be capable of orientating themselves in the development of emergency and crisis plans, civil emergency plans and other plans developed in the area of security. They will be capable of synthetizing the plans from the above mentioned areas in compliance with the current level of theoretical knowledge and valid legal regulations.
