The Managing Defence in the Wider Security Context course will be delivered in Burma in January 2014 by the UK Defence Academy and Cranfield University. The course, tailored for Burma, will teach how defence works within a democratic framework. Five personnel will travel and be accommodated in Burma rather than 30 personnel who would need to travel if the course was in the UK. For the numbers attending this course it is more cost effective to send a team to country.
