frontex-8220 Feb. 12th, 2019, there was a FRONTEX Master's on the Road webcast devoted to the theme, "Use of Force and Coercive Measures During Joint Return Operations," hosted by Mykolas Romeris University (MRU). 

Swedish Police Superintendent Stefan Martinengo discussed the topic during the LIVE event. It was broadcast on Vimeo channel: https://vimeo.com/312073835/e6047a1787 so join in. 

Police Supt. Martinengo focused on the question: How can the use of force and coercive measures be avoided or limited during joint return operations. 

The Webcast is the third Master’s on the Road event that was organized by Frontex and graduates from the European Joint Master's Programme. It is the only such specialised degree focused on border management from a strategic point of view and was developed by Frontex in collaboration with 6 partner universities and more than 20 EU border guard training organisations and academies. 

The European Joint Master’s programme reflects Frontex’s commitment to support education and development of national border and coast guards by establishing common training standards at the European level. 

The first group of 23 students completed the programme almost two years ago. 

The second group of the European Joint Master’s in Strategic Border Management will graduate in June 2019.
