Unarmed Civilian Protection Online Course
October 1 @ 8:00 am - November 19 @ 5:00 pm$300
Be part of the action. Learn how to directly protect civilians in violent conflict. Unarmed civilian protectors save lives and reduce violence. In times of war and violent conflict that continue to kill so many civilians, especially women and children, it takes an unarmed approach to break this cycle of violence.
At the completion of this course you’ll be able to successfully:
- describe the key principles, objectives, and sources of guidance for UCP;
- analyze a conflict and identify vulnerable populations;
- demonstrate an understanding of the methods of UCP and how they can be adapted and applied to a conflict situation;
- identify key features of an effective UCP implementation plan and exit strategy, with a view toward maximizing the security both of UCP staff and local civilians
A student from a previous course shares:
“The course was extremely comprehensive and even without direct experience with unarmed peacekeeping previously I was able to feel comfortable with the material. The interactive lessons were outstanding and it made me feel as close to being involved in such work as possible without actually being there. I also learned a lot from my fellow classmates and their experiences.”
Now it’s your turn to take part in this great experience!
We strongly believe in the importance of educating our staff, local partners and the greater international community and invite you to take part of this course at a newly reduced price. The course is intended for anyone interested in gaining an appreciation of UCP principles, sources of guidance, methods and required skills. The facilitated course will take place from October 1 to November 19, 2019.
