Advanced Course on Conflict, Crisis and Transitions

The Humanitarian Policy Group (HPG) at the Overseas Development Institute and the Post-war Reconstruction and Development Unit (PRDU) at the University of York are partnering to offer the second ‘Advanced Course on Conflict, Crisis and Transitions’, a week-long programme targeting mid-career and senior professionals. The past decade has seen a surge in attention to supporting countries affected by and recovering from conflict. A parallel growth has also occurred in the number of professionals working in the fields of humanitarian, development and post-conflict recovery policymaking and practice. They are faced with a myriad of challenges associated with contexts transitioning from conflict to peace, yet rarely have the opportunity to reflect upon the critical concepts, practical challenges and policy dilemmas involved in supporting effective transitions. The Advanced Course on Conflict, Crisis and Transitions aims to facilitate learning and guided reflection on these crucial issues. The course will bring together mid-career and senior professionals in York for one week each summer. Course participants will engage in a participatory learning process that combines lectures with small group discussions and exercises, with the possibility of publishing an analytical piece.

Commanding UN Peacekeeping Operations

This course is designed for those who may find themselves in leadership positions in UN peacekeeping operations, or for those wishing to understand the issues associated with commanding in peacekeeping operations. It should prove useful to participants at the strategic, operational, or tactical level, to senior and junior leaders, to those appointed to UN command and staff positions, and to those with national command or staff responsibilities. It is applicable to civilian, military, and police appointments, although the later sections of the course concentrate principally on the issues that arise within military and police contingents. It should also be useful to those in organizations that need to interact with UN peacekeeping missions or with the Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO) in the UN Secretariat, such as Member States, regional organizations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and other UN organizations and agencies.

The course first considers those strategic and international issues that define UN peacekeeping, including the relationships that exist between the UN, its Member States, and other organizations. It then considers how UN peacekeeping missions are authorized, launched, and supported by the international community and Member States. The course also looks at how field missions are structured and organized, and finally at the issues associated with commanding in UN peacekeeping missions at operational, national, and tactical levels, including security, force protection, and sustainment concerns.

Disarmament, Demobilisation and Reintegration

The aim of this course is to create a new generation of planners in peace building processes who understand the role of the different actors involved in such processes, and who appreciates the importance of co-operation and co-ordination during planning exercises, of carrying out planning jointly and of starting the planning early.

DDR programmes and operations are more likely to be successful when the various actors supporting national DDR efforts have the necessary knowledge and skills for carrying out the required planning. The DDR Planning Course aims to develop the necessary knowledge and skills through the practical application of the planning guidance provided by the United Nations Integrated Disarmament Demobilisation and Reintegration Standards (IDDRS).

The DDR Planning course will bring together DDR policy and programme practitioners who are or will be involved in planning DDR programmes and operations through the United Nations, regional organisations, national governments, military and police, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and civil society organisations (CSOs).

It will provide practitioners with the necessary knowledge and skills to be able to effectively respond to the conditions, risks and opportunities that arise when planning large-scale, complex DDR programmes and operations.

The DDR Planning course is aimed at senior managers, programme managers, and gender/HIV focal points, as well as representatives from UN and National DDR Commissions, governments, militaries, sub-regional bodies, and donors.

Gender Perspectives in UN Peacekeeping Operations

The purpose of this course is to provide – through both theoretical and practical examples – basic knowledge on mainstreaming the gender perspective in international modern conflicts, to raise awareness of gender issues, and to help ensure the success of peace operations and missions.

The course describes the problems related to gender issues surrounding international modern conflict by analyzing how these problems have evolved over time. The importance of mainstreaming the gender perspective has been elevated to the point of strategic significance within modern-day conflicts, all in the search for a lasting and stable peace.

This course is especially designed for people operating in conflict areas: military, police, and civilian personnel at all levels, as well as personnel working in international governmental and intergovernmental organizations, observers, and NGOs who are interested in gaining awareness on gender issues in peacekeeping operations.

Human Rights

This course is a comprehensive historical overview of the theory and practice of human rights, a term used to describe rights and entitlements that inherently belong to every human being. Although all human beings are entitled to these rights equally, history has shown that all people do not enjoy the same protection of their rights at all times. This course explores the different kinds of human rights, the various international and regional documents necessary to protect and enforce them, and the historical difficulties and conflicts that have occurred in spite of, and often because of, human rights. It includes extensive discussions on the development of the various human rights treaties and enforcement mechanisms, the special protection given to vulnerable groups, human rights during armed conflict, and current debates involving human rights, such as the use of technology either to promote or restrict human rights, and the increasing international significance of stateless actors like transnational corporations and terrorist groups. Fifteen lessons.

Human Rights and Peacekeeping

This course examines the cross-cutting principles and obligations concerning human rights within the specific context of armed conflicts and United Nations peace operations. Human rights is a dimension that transcends all phases and employs all components of a peace operation, leading to often complex implementation planning and coordination, which this course traces and delineates. The course begins by reviewing the landmark documents and instruments indispensible to the protection of human rights in theory, before demonstrating how such protection is enforced and performed on the ground. It discusses the various types of human rights violations, identifies the groups of people especially at risk, and conducts a thorough analysis on the concept of protection – the core of human rights work in peace operations. The course contains important sections on human rights partners – a group that includes such external actors as NGOs and international businesses – and on the process of accountability, which, as the course demonstrates, is essential in peace operations if an established peace is to be long-lasting and sustainable. 10 Lessons.

Introduction to the UN System

This course introduces the purpose and principles of the United Nations, its institutional framework, and its active leadership role in the global pursuit for peace, security, and development. The legal foundations of the Organization are discussed, as well as applications of international humanitarian law, human rights, and the protection of civilians. Practical field techniques for communication, negotiation, and mediation as well as the general obligations and responsibilities of UN field personnel are also presented. Subject matter and objectives for this course are based on UN policy, doctrine, and related resources.

This revised edition provides both historical context and contemporary discussion regarding the UN’s adaptive response and service to the dynamic global community.

Peacekeeping and International Conflict Resolution

The overall aim of this course is to provide the student with a basic understanding of the field of Conflict Resolution and its application, both theoretically and practically, to peacekeeping intervention in contemporary international conflicts. The course explores the emergence and development of the academic discipline of Conflict Resolution and its relation to the evolution of peacekeeping. The contributions of Conflict Resolution theory and practise to peacekeeping are identified early on and considered throughout the course. The nature of conflict and the dynamics of contemporary conflict are defined, along with the key concepts and techniques for resolving conflict. The course explores the significant areas that will improve responses to today’s complex emergencies, including conflict analysis and mapping, early warning and conflict prevention, contingency and complementary approaches, interagency coordination, post-conflict peace-building and reconciliation, cultural understanding, and gender awareness.

The course focuses predominantly at the international level of conflict and conflict intervention, however, many of the principles and techniques that underlie this level are applicable to other levels of conflict (i.e., interpersonal, intergroup, and inter-communal).

Preventing Violence Against Women

Gender inequality and violence against women affect the lives of every person, regardless of age or gender. This course aims to assist peacekeeping personnel to promote the human rights and security of women and girls. It does so through lessons emphasizing the nature and scope of violence against women and girls around the globe, the connections between gender inequality and violence in both public and domestic spaces, as well as on interpersonal, community, national, regional, and international levels. Other lessons cover women’s rights as human rights and the international UN mandate to involve women in key roles within peacemaking and peacebuilding processes at every stage and every level of authority. Readings and case studies provide examples to assist peacekeeping personnel with considering how they, as individuals and as teams, can work to promote gender equality and to change the attitudes and behaviours that perpetuate violence. Ten lessons.

Principles and Guidelines for UN Peacekeeping Operations

This course has been developed in consultation with the Peacekeeping Best Practices Section of the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations’ Policy, Evaluation and Training Division. It is based on the internal DPKO/DFS publication entitled United Nations Peacekeeping Operations: Principles and Guidelines, which is more widely known under its informal name Capstone Doctrine. This publication is a comprehensive document that defines and promulgates available peacekeeping doctrine, definitions, procedures, and policy. In ten chapters, it introduces the concept and evolution of UN Peacekeeping, explains the decision process that precedes the deployment of a peacekeeping operation, and then the planning process to implement that decision. It also discusses the art of successful mandate implementation and addresses the management of peacekeeping operations, how operations are supported and sustained, and how they are concluded at their termination. The Institute course Principles and Guidelines is designed to teach this DPKO doctrine to all UN personnel serving in the field and at Headquarters, as well as to those who are new to UN peacekeeping. Ten chapters.

Protection of Civilians

There is no common UN definition of the protection of civilians. The failure to adopt a common understanding is a cause of daily friction between some of the most important parts of the UN system. The General Assembly, the Security Council, Member States, and troop- and police-contributing countries (TCC/PCCs) all may have different views on what exactly the protection of civilians is. A study published in December 2009 by the Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO) and the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said there are three groups among those active in the peacekeeping environment with three different definitions of POC. First, human rights and humanitarian actors follow an approach based on the rights afforded by international law, particularly humanitarian and human rights law, known as the rights-based approach. Second, the development agencies, such as the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) follow a much broader definition, which effectively includes the protection of civilians within the much broader context of good governance and economic and social developments, known as the “everything you do affects the security of the individual” approach. The third and last group concentrates only on physical violence and the measures needed to protect individuals and groups, if necessary, by force. UN

This self-paced course aims to give students flexibility in their approach to learning. The following steps are meant to provide motivation and guidance about some possible strategies and minimum expectations for completing this course successfully.

United Nations Civil-Military Coordination (UN-CIMIC)

United Nations civil-military coordination (UN-CIMIC) provides the interface between the military component of a UN peace operation and the political, humanitarian, developmental, human rights, and rule-of-law components of the mission, as well as many other external partners in the larger peacebuilding system. It is a crucial function of any complex peace operation because it is central to the mission achieving a system-wide impact on the conflict it is attempting to transform. UN-CIMIC officers must understand the role and functions of a broad variety of development and peacebuilding actors in order that they facilitate and coordinate the support that the peacekeeping force can provide to others in the mission, non-mission actors, and the local community, as appropriate. Based on the 2010 UN-CIMIC Policy, this course introduces UN-CIMIC to military officers who have been assigned this function – though all military and civilian students will find this course useful as it will improve their understanding of the institutional cooperation that needs to occur between mission components, and between the mission and the rest of the system, in order to ensure a sustainable peace process.

United Nations Military Observers

This course puts the work of UNMOs and other Military Experts on Mission in context by offering an enhanced explanation of peacekeeping operations in general and by illustrating specific methods and techniques for serving on a peacekeeping mission. Beginning with a strategic overview of the United Nations, the course moves through the operational spectrum of the Department of Peacekeeping Operations and ends at the tactical level of “on the ground” knowledge and skills required for an individual UNMO to succeed. This course has been updated and revised by a new course author, Lieutenant Colonel Egil Nordli (retired), Norway. LTC Nordli has extensive field experience as a senior military officer in international operations, including most recently his service as the Military Assistant to the Head of Mission in the United Nations Supervision Truce Organization (UNTSO) from 2009 to 2011. He is also an accomplished military trainer. He held the appointment of Chief Instructor of Combined Joint Operations/CIMIC at the Norwegian University College and Norwegian Defence Command and Staff College at the time of his retirement – an appointment he held twice during the period 2002-2011. His experience and expertise is reflected in both new and expanded lessons through updated practical recommendations and new technical detail. Fourteen lessons.

Women, Peace and Security (WPS) Agenda in Africa

In October 2000, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted resolution 1325- a turning point in understanding and recognizing the role of women and girls in addressing the issues of peace and security. Security Council Resolution (SCR) 1325 is the most comprehensive work to date on linking the issues of gender equality with peace and security and has been further substantiated through six additional Security Council resolutions, including SCRs 1820 (2008), 1888 (2009), 1889 (2009), 1960 (2010), 2106 (2013), and 2122 (2013). The purpose of this course is to raise awareness about the importance of these UN SCRs; to build capacities for their implementation; and to promote their sustainable implementation at the regional and national levels. While informative for any student interested in the topic, the course was especially designed for people who work in the area of peace and security at the national or regional levels in Africa, and who require a practical tool to support and facilitate the implementation of the women, peace, and security agenda. The first three lessons focus more broadly on the UN’s role in promoting a peace and security agenda, including from a gender perspective, and the role of SCR 1325 (2000) and subsequent resolutions. Within this context, Lessons Four and Five highlight the challenges and priorities specific to the African region. Finally, Lesson 6 examines the role of both regional and subregional organizations in supporting national implementation of the resolution. This course was developed by the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) in collaboration with the Peace Operations Training Institute.

WPS Agenda in Asia and the Pacific

The purpose of this course is to raise awareness about the importance of UN SCRs on women, peace, and security; to build capacities about the possible ways of their implementation; and to promote their sustainable implementation at the regional and national level. While informative for any student interested in the topic, the course was especially designed for people who work in the area of peace and security at the national or regional levels in Asia and the Pacific, and who require a practical tool to support and facilitate the implementation of the women, peace, and security agenda. The course is based on background information, analysis, and a wide range of studies. The first three lessons focus more broadly on the UN’s role in promoting a peace and security agenda, including from a gender perspective and the role of SCR 1325 (2000) and subsequent resolutions. Within this context, Lessons Four and Five highlight the challenges and priorities specific to the Asia and the Pacific region.
