The course program is designed for mid and senior level civil affairs, political affairs and other civilian, military and police officers working in field and peacekeeping operations (UN, AU, EU, OSCE etc.), as well as those working in public sector, non-governmental organizations, academic institutions, or preparing to serve in peace operations.

The course will be conducted virtually via Zoom software. The training will consist of lectures and facilitated discussions by senior experts and practitioners in the field (UN senior mediation advisers, director of political and civil affairs, senior advisors in UN PKOs), as well as simulation exercises, role play and case studies, which will comprise over 50% of the course. A space will be provided for group discussions and best practices and experience sharing among the participants under the guidance of the senior mentors.
