Sensitisation Training

Germany mandate in Germany 23.05.2016. - 25.05.2016.

The sensitisation SSR course is designed for policymakers and practitioners who are working in the field of security and justice reform to build both SSR knowledge and skills. The objective of this course is to provide participants with a solid introduction to the concept, policy framework and international good practice of security and justice reform through its practical and exercised-based collaborative learning methodology. The course provides an overview of the various dimensions of SSR and emphasises the importance of adopting a holistic and context-specific approach when working in transitional, fragile and/or post-conflict contexts. The course also discusses key issues such as gender, coordination and SSR programming. The course provides the necessary foundations for subsequent trainings.

After assessing the NATO Commander's orders and reviewing Military Response Options (MROs), the exercise will design and elaborate a project. Part of the plan will integrate elements for preventing or de-escalating conflict, providing early warning and early action by building resilience, partly through the role of the military in SSR.

DPKO is requesting ISSAT to participate in and provide secretariat support to the work of the panel undertaking the independent review.
