The event series of the ‘Extremism, Religious Extremism Ludovika Research Group’ continued with the lecture and roundtable discussion by Dr. Joanne Washington titled “The Role of Religious Organizations in the Training of People Who Will Encounter Casualties of Armed Conflicts”. The European Union financed research group welcomed the renowned communication expert at the Faculty of Military Science and Officer Training of the National University of Public Service on the 6th of October 2017.

In her introduction, Dr. Washington drew a quick outline of the training and education systems in the United States for those, who work with refugees. Right from the beginning, she stressed that the methods in these processes are mostly applied and not theoretical in the US.

In the following section, Dr. Washington explained the theory of what she called: the “resilience factor”. Understanding this helps all those personnel dealing with refugees to understand the factors that help those in the greatest danger, feeling for their lives to prevail and survive. The bonds of the family and the relationship of the social worker, law enforcement official or soldier to the family are really important in these cases. The ADDIE model, which was developed at the University of Florida, was also presented to the audience. This model is used in the training of American armed forces personnel.  ADDIE stands for: Analysis, Design, Development, Improvement and Evaluation, and it could be an effective model in the training of those, who deal with refugees too.

In the closing stages of the lecture, the audience could also see a video containing a case study of the practices of the American refugee integration process.

Throughout her successful academic career, Dr. Joanne Washington has mostly worked in the field of training and teaching development. She received her Ph.D. from Indiana University in 1993, and also worked with many organizations helping underprivileged people and minorities. Her academic career is also closely connected to Clarion University, where she was the Chair of the Department of Communication. Since 2017, she has been employed as a Research Assistant of the Office of Education at Marymount University.

The next event of the ‘Extremism, Religious Extremism Ludovika Research Group’ is on the 19th of October with a workshop titled “The Question of War in Religions”.

On 2 October, the National University of Public Service launched its very first English Professional Development Course in Forensic Science with the cooperation of specialists from the Marymount University In the Unites States. This course was introduced as a result of the partnership agreement that the two institutes have signed in 2016.

The Marymount University was established in 1950 as an independent Catholic institute. It offers numerous Bachelor, Master and PhD degree programmes to its students. The American university’s community is very diverse because the approximately 3600 students come from 70 different countries.

The partnership agreement was signed by the two universities with the aim of creating for their professors and researches an opportunity for mobility, joint researches, and partificipation in professional programs, primarily in the field of criminalistics and cybersecurity.  One of the key contributor to this agreement was Réka Szemerkényi, the former ambassador of Hungary in Washington, who also attended the opening ceremony of the course.

On behalf of Prof. Dr. András Patyi, Rector, Dr. Gábor Kovács welcomed the guests during the opening ceremony. The Vice-Rector for Education at NUPS highlighted that  the U.S., as the most influential country, is leading the world in the field of forensic science as well. Therefore, the participants can learn not only the Hungariand and European processes, but - thanks to the cooperation between NUPS and the Marymount University - they can have an insight, how the experts of this field work oversea.

During the 4-day training, professors from the Marymount University introduce through theoritical and practical knowledge the forensic processes in the US using the latest, most modern, cutting-edge technology. On the first day, the participants were mainly introduced to basic legal principles. US law practice differs greatly from the situation in Hungary. It is necessary to understand know these differences in order to understand the cases correctly and to implement the best practices. During the other days of the course, the focus will be on practice regarding the investigations. In addition, to reveal and document the traces, the participants will be involved in ballistics as well. At the end of the course, the participants will receive a certificate of completion.
