They provide participants with the opportunity to train together with an exceptional group of experts and practitioners from around the world, coming from governments, community-based, national and international organisations, military and security forces, donors and others. The programmes are thorough, rigorous and dynamic, drawing upon lessons learnt in the field and training people in practical skills, knowledge and capabilities to directly improve their own and their organisations capacities for peacebuilding, prevention and post-war recovery, designing of peace programmes and peace support operations.

Designing Peacebuilding Programmes (DPP), 26-30 November 2012, is an in-depth operational training in program development, design, planning and implementation, drawing comprehensively on best-practice approaches from the fields of peacebuilding, development and humanitarian aid, and post-war recovery, as well as methods and approaches for strategic planning and program and organizational development. Incorporating the work of the OECD-DAC and lessons learned and approaches from national and international agencies, the DPP provides organizations and participants with methods to significantly improve the quality, relevance, and impact of their programs. Most importantly: participants engage with their actual programs and operations and use the framework of Designing Peacebuilding Programmes to learn leading methodologies in the field while improving actual work in practice.

Early Warning, Early Response and Contemporary Peace Operations (EWER), online programme, is a self-directed course, designed to introduce the world of EW/ER in complex integrated emergency situations. The course will introduce participants to the different aspects and indicators of early warning and early response, the discussions surrounding early response, and the selection, evaluation and validation of a number of EW/ER tools. Participants will learn to become comfortable in selecting and using an appropriate analytical tool, using it correctly and accurately assessing its strengths and weaknesses in light of their goals. An important outcome is to focus on how early warning will work in practice. The course is suitable for civilian, police and military United Nations and EU staff dealing with response mechanisms in times of crisis; international NGO staff; (and potentially, those wishing to enter a career in international development and post-conflict reconstruction).
Deadline for applications:
Participation on rolling bases
Start date of the course:3rd December, 2012
