Great strategy, security, risks, threats and security sector reforms were some topics of the course held by Iulian Chifu. 

The author spoke about the strategy, its elements, how are planed and implemented current reforms and security strategies. According to Iulian Chifu, "Strategy is a vision, a narrative, a story, a level of aspiration". Besides the main components of a strategy, young leaders knew what the great strategy means, which are its realistic periods and states that have the strongest security strategies. In this regard, we note that the great stategy is a vision that are applied at the national level, and, strategies in areas such as: economic, military or demographic show how to realize this vision. Although, formally speaking, there are national strategies, not all strategies in the world are spectacular. "Not all nations or states have a great strategy, but that doesn’t mean hey shouldn’t have", said Iulian Chifu. That this strategies would give results, countries need to face the risks, threats and vulnerabilities and then to plan solutions. In security policies, Republic of Moldova should separate politics from the force structure in order to ensure transparency and a judicial, financial, administrative and civil control. As about the country's security options, Iulian Chifu said the following "Moldova is a single state and can not afford to be neutral, because it hasn’t capabilities to cope with threats."

Saturday, in the second part of the training, young leaders tried to develop a draft strategy for the Transnistrian region, taking into account global, regional and local influences, and also to understand how to restructurate such a document and what actions should be implemented. Thus, they analyzed international policy actions in the field, Moldova's regional achievements and ways that should be built the communication at the local level with the breakaway power.

Theoretical courses are held weekly by a team of experts from academia, business and public administration, career diplomats and other public actors.
