Swiss Peacebuilding Training Course (SPTC) 2024 – 25th Edition
The GCSP on behalf of the Swiss Federal Department for Foreign Affairs (FDFA) and in cooperation with the Swiss Armed Forces offers a 2-week course on peacebuilding for the Swiss FDFA Expert Pool and selected international participants.
Preparing for the Field
Building peace is complex, challenging, and ever-changing. Join us at the SWISSINT International Command Centre to immerse yourself in learning – from peacebuilding concepts, skills, and tools to how you apply them effectively in the field in support of your purpose, mission and organisation.
The course covers 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:
Develop your knowledge and analytical skills to understand trends and developments in peacebuilding and the interlinked challenges of peace and security within increasingly complex and volatile peacebuilding environments,
Strengthen your capacity to design and develop effective peacebuilding projects and interventions,
Apply the theoretical and practical tools, instruments and skills taught in the course in a realistic field-based scenario exercise
The Swiss Peacebuilding Training Course prepares civilian peacebuilders for the challenges they face during their missions around the world. This video, created by the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs FDFA shows why the Swiss Expert Pool for Civilian Peacebuilding of the Peace and Human Rights Division organises this course and what participants can take away from it for their work.
