Preparing for the Field
Peacebuilding is complex, challenging, and ever-changing. Join us at the Swiss Armed Forces International Centre to learn, build or strengthen your understanding of key peacebuilding concepts and the ability to effectively apply tools and techniques, to support you and your organisation in the field.
The course covers both the theoretical and practical aspects of peacebuilding. Through our comprehensive and inclusive approach to peacebuilding, this course is designed to meet the training needs for integrated missions. Specifically, the course enables you to:
- Deepen your knowledge and analytical skills as you understand the interlinked challenges of peace and security within the peacebuilding environment
- Enhance your capacity to prepare and design effective peacebuilding projects and initiatives
- Develop skills for your work in peacebuilding missions either as secondees to multilateral organisations or as an implementer of bilateral projects
- Expand cross-cultural understandings and instil a greater awareness of diversity and gender considerations
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
The course is aimed at members of the Swiss Expert Pool and international participants with up to 5 years of peacebuilding experience, either civilian or military. International participants should be affiliated with government ministries, institutions, non-governmental organisations or traditional authorities. Applicants will be selected on a competitive basis and with due regard to diversity and gender balance.
This course is sponsored by the Government of Switzerland. Selected participants will only need to cover the cost of their travel to the course venue in Stans, medical coverage and visa.
