Balancing Needs and Constraints: The Role of Planning Risks

The lecture presents the types of risk related to the use and the development of armed forces. It introduces the students to the theory and methods of assessing risks in defence planning, and provides examples on the usefulness of risk assessments. The students are acquainted with the main issues in managing risks at macro level, i.e., as related to the overall force structure, and to the micro level, e.g. related to particular missions.

Currently, lecture notes are available only in Bulgarian. Key references, however, are freely available online, in the English language.
