TfP Civilian Peacekeeping and Peace-building Course

on . Posted in Peacekeeping

ACCORD’s Training for Peace (TfP) Programme will host a Civilian Peacekeeping and Peacebuilding Course (CPPC) in Pretoria, South Africa, from 21-25 May. The course will involve approximately 25 participants selected from across the continent, and is a key component of the TfP. It aims to prepare experienced civilians, working in various relevant fields of expertise in Africa, for service in peacekeeping and peace building missions.

 This will be done by building on their existing skills and expertise, by showing them how these can be applied in the peacekeeping and peace building context, and by providing them with the knowledge and additional personal skills they would need in the peacekeeping and peace building environment.

The TfP in Africa Programme is funded by the Royal Norwegian Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, and is comprised of four partner organisations: the Institute for Security Studies (ISS); the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre (KAIPTC); the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI); and, ACCORD.
