Security Capacity Building (SCB) is the main vehicle of support to African Peace Support Operations Troop Contributing Countries (PSO TCC) whether through aid or the market place. Introducing the Governance element into the assistance to African PSO TCC can yield benefits. This implies:
- including issues related to accountability (behavioural and performance related),
- legitimacy and
- linkage into wider institution-building processes of the organisations of the partner countries in charge of training and deployment of troops, police and civilians to PSOs.
In this video, Thammy Evans, Deputy Head of ISSAT, reflects on the Security Capacity Building and the Training of PSO personnel in SSR where she discusses training for peace support operations, the role of peacekeeping training centres, institution- and capacity building. The video was presented at the 3rd Annual Peacekeeping Africa Conference that took place in Johannesburg, South Africa on 29 - 30 August 2017.
